Here is a bit of a WIP on a little knife I am working on, comments welcome!
I didn't get many pics of the blade, but here you go!
Start of grinding.
Image

Hand finishing.
Image

Starting materials for the handle. Bog oak, mammoth tooth, maple dowel, fiber spacers, and a hunk of black buffalo horn
Image

Handle materials assembled, at this point the tang slot is in place, and the dowel is inside the handle, to provide an extra mechanical bond.
Image

Next, removing the surplus on the 36 grit belt.
Image
Image

Squaring the handle.
Image
Image

Setting the bevels.
Image
Image

Next, I made a dummy tang, same size and shape of the one on the knife. To burn in the exact fit.

Test fit.

Now to buff and polish.
Image

These are pre glue up, the little machi will disappear.

Specs.
Blade is O1 @ HRC 61 Hand rubbed finish

Handle as stated consists of 3430 year old bog oak,
white vulcanized fiber and mammoth tooth spacer, buffalo horn ferrule.

I don't have a scale, but this thing is silly light!

153mm on the edge

31 mm high

full distal taper, convex grind

rounded choil and spine

It is a pleasant switch from those 300 mm+ blades.

Thanks guys, I am glad you like it! I'll see what I can do about more pictures in the future. I'm on vacation on the east cast for a couple weeks right now! Good times!
