Dagger KITH knife part 7

This should have been called a DITH.
I reshaped the handle to get rid of the pain brush handle and wet sanded the handle and then gave it a coat of superglue and then sanded it again through the grits up to 600 wet and dry . The superglue isn't necessary but it does speed the sanding up a bit and it fills any little holes in the 'micarta' . to finish off i polish the entire knife with autosol  metal polish

in the hand

This is my first dagger , I've just been making it up as I go along  so I'm quite happy with the result

thanks for looking
