    This knife is getting there I tell you hand sanding hardened 440 is hard I think i got the blade where i want it so now more on the handle today i dye the handle leather and drill the lanyard hole polish the end cap then polish the handle maybe all that today ,i've been building a tire carrier for the jeep so maybe i'll have this knife done this weekend maybe next i want the dye to dry real good and to tell you the truth i'm wore out hand sanding been at it for 8 hours now . anyways heres a look at the knife so far. the handle spacers are the afghanistan campaign ribbon colors and i tryed to make it as close as pos. to the right spacing to match the exact ribbon think i did it. its my first time staining leather on knife handles we'll see how that goes mixing with the spacers ........ i think i'll try it on a spare first .....LOL .. OYa This is a take down handle i want the guy to be able to clean it with ease. this knife is a freebe to a solider coming back from afgh.
