I'm trying to finish up any projects that I have going on before I start on any new knives. One of those projects is cleaning and organizing garage....one of these days. Anyways this blade has been heat treated for almost a year. The original plan was to make it a sub hilt but many different ideas went thru my mind. I finally committed to the sub hilt. The blade is O-1 with ebony scales, stainless gaurds and pins with 1 mosaic pin. The blade is 4.65" long and 9.0" oal. I still have some buffing to do and put my mark on it so I will post some better pics when I totally finish it is. Let me know what you guys think.
