    Thanks and now it's brother in Spalted Stabilized Tamarind. I polished these blades to a mirror finish and its all I can do to keep the reflections out of them and the glare down, sorry.

    7 1/8" total
    2 7/8" blade, came out a little longer than first, oh well I only say close...lol.

    last but not least a simple hunter made from 3/16" stock thickness 1095, full flat grind down to .015'' before heat treatment, thats about as thin as I can go without getting waves in the edge. Made this one a little softer than usual target hardness was 58/59 hrc. Handle is self gathered black walnut from the good old Arbuckle mountiand here in Oklahoma with nickel silver bolster and pins. Tapered tang on this one, no file work as I couldn't bear to do another.
