Waiting on supplies to come in so I took a piece of 01 tool steel that I had in the shop and started grinding. Tapered from .220 at the butt down to less than .120 at the tip. Heat treated and double draw tempered to HRC 60. Scales are birds eye maple that I added some blue dye to the stabilizing solution. Hand rubbed satin finish on the blade. Stainless bear paw mosaic pins and lanyard tube.
Sort of an every day carry size of 7 inches overall.

Very cool. Are the bolsters supposed to be an animal track?

The pins resemble a bear track. As close as I can get anyway.

The colors are great on that one. What will it sell for if you don't mind my asking?

Mike, it's time. You have seen my giant paws, need a knife to fill one of them. Will this one fit the bill?

This one wouldn't fill your paw Kent but I can make one that will. Send me a PM and we'll make it happen.
