This one is a little different than what I usually make but I thought what the heck. I think this profile would look good with a nice burl wood and regular finished blade also, but for this one I put carbon fiber scales and 1/16" pins, which gave me a run for my money, getting those small pins in that carbon fiber was a major pain for some reason. I then just sand blasted the whole knife to give it a nice frosty look.
It took me so long to get the 8 1/16" pins in this darn thing the epoxy set up and I ended up getting a few bubbles in the back fill, I guess that's just how the cookie crumbled on this one.
5/32 stock thickness D2 tool steel
