    Here is my new project. Literally found it in the woods hiking today. This is what it looks like after I knocked off th scales, and took some 220 to it. And a pic of it next to my Tojiro 210mm for size comparison. This boys gonna take a lot of work. As the tip is all but pitted out, and the whole edge needs reprofiled. But should be fun. Will be my first ODC wa handle conversion too

    Oh, and here is what the "original" handle looked like. Held on with bolts. BTW, not makers mark to be found.

    Here's that Dexter Scimitar. I cut a tang, machi, reworked the choil and drilled some extra holes for gluing. Handle is dry fit then epoxied on. After a trip to the stones it's very sharp.

    Thanks for the props - it's a great knife now. Can't wait to make a saya for it - that's going to be fun. LOL

    Last one up is an old, old Deba - a short little thing, but so abused over the years. After that I need to get back to guitar work - tax refund season is comming . . . .

    That handle is rosewood and tight curly maple. Here is the last one - a 30 - 40 yr. old Deba
