This is 1084 carbon steel, 7 1/2" overall, the wood is some stabilized spalted hackberry I harvested from my neighbors tree. Copper pins.

I like the shape! I think it would look sharp if you only ground the edge and left the rest black with the handles almost white

I really like the profile Kev.

I think bluing the blade would be awesome!

I'm really curious to see that Hackberry after you stabilize it. up

That's a great profile Kev, I make one similar to that and it's one of my best selling knives.
