It's a bad photo but here it is in the current state. I ordered two billets of CPM 3v to make this one. This one is 5/32 inch thick. I have the pins and lanyard tub ground and beveled as well. You can see I moved the lanyard up on the handle from the design on this one. I've got the scandi grind started and should finish it up today. I am suspecting there will be about 160 hours of sanding to smooth this steel up. It's rough stuff. I have 3/16 titanium pins for the scales and decided on titanium tubing for the lanyard as well. I ordered what I think will be the scales last night. Check them out:
I loves me some spaulted boxelder... :)
Anyhow, I've decided to call this model the Waldgeist. Look it up. You'll see what I mean. Thanks for lookin' and take care.
