The latest

The different thing about this knife is I made it. Well from a pre shaped blank any way.

The flash really brings the scratches out unfortunately so a little longer on the polishing wheel will help. I haven’t been as thorough as I will be in future as this was done just to see what was needed (initial polishing only brought out the machining marks so I took to it with emery paper).

Being a little out of focus helps. The guard I bent to a shape I prefer and then I cut out the scales drilled them to match the knife, turned down the pins and attached them. Next time I leave the scales oversize as the alignment was imperfect. Now to decide what to build next.
