    I have been playing around with cord wrapped handles a bit. Here is my latest effort. The blade is forged from 1084 with a wrought iron guard and pommel. The handle is full tang built up with leather, wrapped in cotton cord with cotton ribbon on the outside. The whole handle is soaked in epoxy so it wont undo. The tang extends through the pommel and is hot pinned. I think there is an slag inclusion in the blade so I'm going to pound the tar out of this one and see how it holds up.

    I really like the simplicity of the lines and the overall look. Great knife.

    Well done man. I really like the way it looks old. How many thousand times did you have to hammer that tang to peen it?
