    Made this a few days ago. 1084 steel. Copper bolster and lanyard tube. 3/16 Stainless pins. Purple Heart handle material I had laying around.Little bit of file work. Handle is super comfortable. A lot of flaws in this knife but I learned a lot. First bolster. Beat it up a little bit testing it out.

    Nice! I like the copper. You're doing it right. Using good steel and making a cool, unique design. Can't see any pins in the bolster. Did you use copper pins?
