Hi everyone. The last couple weeks have been pretty busy with work and to add to that my computer took a big crap by getting infected with a virus, it was totally locked up. But the computer is fixed, worked slowed down a bit and I was able to get in the garage this past weekend and finish this thing up. Overall it turned out pretty good. I eneded up going with black micarta scales with mosaic pins. My one major complaint is that the pins in the bolsters are noticabal. I fight with this every time I use stainless bolsters, some times I get it right and they don't show and sometimes I don't. This time I didn't and I appologise up front to the guy that gets it. The sheath is an all leather cow pouch style. Admittingly, at the end you need to look pretty hard to see any Scandi theme in this blade but it was still a fun build. This was my first KITH game and It was fun. Looking forward to the next one. Best regards Greg.
