    I made these kids at about the same time from the same piece of 0.125" 154CM from Canadian Knifemaker Supply. It was a 2" x 8" piece, so I had to very carefully cut the steel and cleave the spawn.

    The top knife with the composite scale I detailed in a short WIP here. The bluish guy is a tiny bit shorter, closer to 7.75" and sports a stabilized dyed blue maple handle from WoodStabilzer.

    It's cool to see from where they started so I included this next photo.

    Feel free to use the PDF template here and make your own pattern.
    To be forthright, I adopted the shape from a knife I'd seen in a book entitled "500 Knives: Celebrating Traditional & Innovative Designs."
    Yes, public libraries still exist; and yes I borrowed the book from the library. LOL

    Now to the sheaths.

    Happy knifemaking!

    Public library? Hmm... I think I know what it is...

    Sweet! You certainly got the optimum out of that piece of steel. Really nice knives, Dan! Love the composite scales and the tutorial that goes along with it!

    That composite scale turned out really nicely.
