    Just finished up this small hunter.
    154cm, 7" oal with a 3 " blade. The handle is cocobolo dymondwood with brass pins.
    The sheath is the first to get my new stamp

    You're back in business man! One day you can take that knifemaking money and buy an Evenheat oven. :)
    Nice shape and the Dymondwood finished up great.
    My only critique is that I see some surface inclusions that could have been cleaned up. Don't take it the wrong way, as I am only offering a suggestion so that we make better knives.

    Did Ed Storch heat treat this one?

    Yes Ed is treating my blades now.
    Thanks for the constructive criticism Dan. I had left the mill scale on the flats of this one then decided I didn't like the look so tried to sand it off after ht. There is some pitting that I gave up on trying to sand out. Giving this knife to a friend in exchange for some leather tools and he is ok with the minor flaws.

    Nice looking little blade. I'm wondering, why did you go with an angle plunge line??

    I actually always do the angled plunge. I like the look more than a straight one.
