    I just finished up a new knife for a buddy.  The blade started from a stick of 80crv2.  I did all the heat treating.  The handles are from a stick of Claro Walnut that I had laying around, and finished with boiled linseed oil.  It’s not too much to look at, but I hope that it will be functional.

    I like it. Did you make or buy the rivets I thank that’s what there called. Looks like a perfect hunting style knife. The one I have used for over 30 years looks almost like that knife

    I bought the pins for the handles from a knife supply house.
