    W2 blade, selective quench, folded steel handle, stainless pin, teflon washers.
    110mm closed, 141mm overall for 61mm blade. Really small but I didnt want to trow away any piece of W2 that I have so I made this little blade...
    Thank's for watching.

    That is beautiful Fred, is that handle wrought? looks like it has a grain to it.

    Thank you :D Handle looks but don't feel rough. It is rubbed with 120 and 600 grit, darkened and buffed with a sisal and a coton wheel.

    That is awesome Fred :) Grayzer was asking if you used wrought iron for the handle because it looks like the steel has some grain in it. Is that what you used?

    Thank you metal99. I misunderstand Grayzer's question... excuse my english. It's not wrought iron, it's steel, the grain texture is the result of differents surface treatments that I apply to ''caracterize'' the metal. And once again excuse my english and feel free to correct me if it's too difficult to read ;).

    It reads well Fred :) I'm really impressed with your handle. Whatever it is that your doing to get that effect keep it up! Your work is always so cool!
