I have no idea why I made this but it was fun. The scales are walnut burl and had to be oil sanded to get a smooth non streaky finish. Solid copper pins and a machete sheath from Forestry Suppliers in Mississippi. I would not want to be on the receiving end of it.

Thanks everyone. I'm still not sure what use it has other than the cool factor. I may kill a hog with it.

I’ve made a couple of those out of industrial hack saw blades. None as cool as that one.

I never sell anything knife related that I make. I just make them for friends and myself. If I sold them it would feel like work, and I just want it to be fun and not work. It's kind of a therapeutic thing for me. I get into the tiny details of it and don't think about anything else.
