Jerry,
Steel is 1084, OAL 7 1/2 inches, forged with hammers from a 4 1/2 inch piece of bar stock.  Handle is spalted oak from a friend's wood pile.  Sheath is hand stitched cross draw for left side.

Tippit, I like your work!  Have you ever tried a hawk?
I love the smell of Walnut shavings in the morning!

Beautiful, both knife and sheath. From the looks of that handle, you better dig around that woodpile some more...that’s some snazzy wood!

 Greg,
I have a bunch of it...but use it sparingly for special projects.
