    Hi everyone,

    I got this knife finished a little earlier this winter and I finally took some pics. It's 9" OAL, blade is 4 9/16" long. It made of 1/8" thick 440C. The handle is black canvass micarta and the pins and guard are brass.

    Introducing my brand new maker's mark, many many thanks to @dancom . I find the mark a little fuzzy, I'm going to have to work on getting it crisper. Maybe etch deeper, I don't know. I'll figure it out eventually.

    I made a sheath for it as well.

    Suggestions are always welcome good or bad. Thanks for looking.

    Wow, that looks really sweet! The curves and finish on the handle is very attractive. Of course, black and brass together is always a winner!

    Did you get your stencil made by Ernie?
    Maybe practice some etching on scrap steel. I usually blacken the etch and then wipe with very mild polishing compound like Flitz or Brasso. This sort of smooths the mark and softens the edges. Sometimes I use the blue scotch-brite too. Worth experimenting with.

    Great looking knife and sheath!

    Thanks Dan. You are right, you can't go wrong with black and brass.

    I did get my stencils from Ernie. Seems like a nice fella. Took no time at all to get my stencils through the mail.

    I tried a light sanding with 800 grit after I blackened the etch but I found it was a little too much. I'm going to try the Brasso next time maybe even a scotch-brite like you mentionned. Is the green coarser than the blue? I got some green here but maybe it's too much. Is there some color code to those by any chance?
