A new hunting profile from my bench longer and shallower then I usually do I also moved the plunge cut and leading edge of the bolster right together, no wasted blade here. 99% of my new profile knives or experimental knives are built on the simple side, embellishing a knife with bolster etc is easy enough to do next time. This one is 1095 high carbon and black paper micarta with Nickel silver, brass and copper mosaic pins, a little basic file work, over all pretty simple and tried and true materials.

I found this set of presentation grade Ironwood scales, looking through the box at Jantz, and had to see them on a knife. You need to see these in real life they look like marble. This is a popular profile I get a lot of interest in with a few slight mod's, the butt of the handle, I carried out the belly and made a sharper sweep into the tip for a more aggressive skinning profile, I very deeply etched the high carbon Damascus
