    Thanks shadman
    Yes It is a false edge. Starting with 1/4" stock and being as short as it is I had to thin it out on top somehow. It started as a swedge and in getting both sides even ended up as a full Dagger grind lol

    I like it! Good size for an EDC. The burl looks really good.

    Thanks. Had a bit of an oops while dry fitting it all up and snapped one side in half. Luckily I had a leftover piece from a previous project and had just enough to save my ass lol.

    Lol. It's just too bad that it was the match to the nicer side that broke.
