That's a cracker Tony.  My favourite so far I'd say. :tu:

Mine too I think  :think: well its the best shape but the first one is probably my favourite   :tu:

You will get to play with it at the meet (unless someone buys it before then) and you can tell me the handle is too short   :D

I've been using the first one I finished to make the handle for the big one, (slowly)
it works really well as a woodworking tool, I've been chopping, shaping and shaving wood with it  :tu:

Added, And you were right about the head, I had to add a metal wedge  :)

I found a place selling copper rivets for leather work
Thought I would try them out on this sheath



I went for the 4mm (biggest they sell  ::) ) think I will order some smaller ones next time







Not totally happy with the finish so hit them with a hammer until they are a bit more rustic  ;)

Well done as usual  :salute:

I got some of those recently as well, and 6mm Copper rod for the pins of my Bushlore, the idea being the sheath rivets and handle pins matching  :facepalm:

I like that idea!  :tu:

The only thing I don’t like about this knife is the bail is copper and everything else is brass
