I made a Tracker Knife from the movie "The Hunted". Raindrop Damascus full tang, walnut burl scales and brass pins. It's a beast and can chop down small trees with ease. The sheath was made from buffalo hide and is RH small of the back. I can't take credit for the sheath, I got the sheath on eBay because I suck at leather work.

This is right before assemply. LO is left/outside and RO is right/outside. I taught myself that trick after a horrible event with some 5 minute epoxy LOL.

I mark mine too, but after the liners are glued to the scales it's pretty obvious which way they go. That and I use a slower setting West Systems epoxy these days. The West Systems epoxy isn't cheap but it's the best that I used and I've tried lots of them.

I switched to Bob Smith 30 minute cure after the 5 minute stuff got away from me a few times. I still mark everything just so I don't get too messy trying the wrong side.

A while back I accidentally ordered some of the West System “G/flex” 655 thickened epoxy. It is thick and I thought I’d hate it..turns out to be great stuff. It’s 1:1 ratio and since it squeezes from a “toothpaste” type tube it is very easy to portion. I’ll doubt I’ll go back to “regular” runny epoxy after using the g/flex.
