    Hi Guys, its been a while since I was last able to get some shop time, a lot of things appending outside the shop, toped off with some minor health issues that is pretty much taken care of.
    So was able to get back in the shop and since I dint have any metal left since my last bowie, and just itching to make a knife, I found a big enough piece of scrap to make a little gentlemen knife. ( thank you Dan for the template)
    I also tried my hand at brazing a bolster to the blade.
    so here it is, 01 blade and bolster brazed with silver.
    pins are brass, and scales are made of African black wood.
    I also got creative with my master craft belt sander and tried a new way to create a bevel.
    hope you guys like it.
    Cheers!

    Looks great. I like working with the smaller scrap pieces. I find it makes me try things I normally wouldn't because of size and shape of what is left to work with.
