01 tool 1/8, vinegar forced patina, black walnut scales brass pins
personally, i love a smaller more "everyday" style knife. Maybe this is called an EDC knife, I'm not sure. I like how the cutting edge is delineated by the heel of the blade. I use walnut a lot for scales and it never turns out as nice looking as this. What did you do? One small suggestion, the front pin would look better, in my view, if it weren't ground on an angle. Some like that look, I don't know why i don't. Nice knife alba.
Thank you ToddR,
I am going to concentrate on smaller to maybe medium blades, my equipment is very very basic and is not conducive to complex builds. Plus I need to get the basics down. Thank you very much for the advice on pins, I agree I don't really like them ground on an angle myself. The walnut, I don't think I did anything special, sanded it to to 400 grit and then raised the grain by wiping it with water and then finished with 600 grit and oiled with grapeseed oil.
