    Just finished this and want to see if I can post it using DropShots seeing as Photobucket screwed me on all my pictures for the last number of years.

    I called it SLOW DEATH after a fish hook I saw in Cabellas.

    Center core is 52100 and the outer core is 15N20.

    That is one sweet looking knife Cal. Simple and elegant, with a hint of danger.

    Again I am reminded just how far I have to go! We just played, "That's not a knife, this is a KNIFE," and you won! Wonderful Forge, jaw dropping-ly good!

    The wood is Ironwood, sanded to 600 grit , buffed and then oiled.

    Leather sheaths look so much better than kydex. Gotta spend some time learning how to work leather.

    That knife just blows me away..
