latest rondel dagger

Between catching up on work and dealing with a sick baby half the week, I've been busting my butt trying to finish up all my outstanding projects. Here's the latest rondel dagger. I really like this style. Comfy to hold and to carry on a belt, not too long, not too short.

Blade: ~11" long, ~1/4" thick along spine at base, single edged, 5160 steel
Handle: aged calf humerus
Fittings: very coarse wrought iron, etched

You definitely have a touch for period pieces.

Hah.....that would require making stuff more often! I picked up another hobby that's even more addictive.

I'm almost afraid to ask what the new hobby is.

Seriously, Wade, have you seen Don's grinder? If I recall, he put it together backwards.
