This was in the works for quite a while and delivered in time for Christmas. If I ever had a knife that was snakebit from the beginning, this bitch was it. SO many issues along the way I can't even start without dropping F-bombs. All in all it came out OK. But this is the last time I use S30V and I can say that with certainty.
OK, enough bitching. S30V blade (6" long) full flat grind with a 500 grit hand-rubbed finish. Hey Ma, look no plunge cuts! That was a pain. Full taper from edge to spine. Distal taper from heel to tip. Rounded spine and choil area. Black G10 bolsters with micarta pins. Handle is stabilized curly redwood and black G10 liners.
I took WIP pics throughout the whole process and I'll post those later.
