the steel I'm using is 4mm 01 , about 30mm wide
the bevels are the normal 22 degree scandi grind found on most bushy blades
I hand sanded the flats to 360 grit before heat treatment . The blade is tempering in the oven at the moment .
I hope to get some scales on this by the weekend

I made up a little KYDEX sheath this morning and added some man knitting
overall length is 115mm
blade length 47mm
steel 3mm 01
Saturday, 7 May 2011
Total length is 112mm
blade length is 45mm
I should get round to doing the heat treatment tomorrow (if all goes well)
I'm not sure what I'm going to use for handle scales yet

the scales are held on with epoxy and 4 mm brass pins
overall length is about 220mm
the blade is 105mm long with a 22 degree bevel and a micro bevel
orange satin liners . I was hoping the orange GITD powder would show up a bit better giving the impression that the liners were shining through the hessian , but it doesn't really glow for very long .
I will try and get a photo later .
