    I’m sorry I have not been on here much, but work and family has taken a toll on knife making lately. I thought I would post up my latest knife, the blade was forged from a file, I won the handle block in an online contest, the guard is mild steel and the spacer was scrap brass. All told without counting propane, sanding / grinding materials I think I have less than 5$ in it. :)

    Brad I like the sandblasting detail on the guard. Good looking knife and at the right price.
