RWL, giraffbone, ebony and bronze.

My first hollowground blade ever.
I found it quite hard to put a hand rubbed finish on the blade and still maintain the crisp grindlines.

Anyway, the blade is made of RWL steel and is filworked along the spine.
I used bronze liners, stabilized giraffbone scales and ebony bolsters for the handle. All held together with filworked torx screws.

The knife has been done for quite a while, just got around to finish the sheath yesterday.
After some experimenting I managed to get the right shade of grey I wanted for the sheath.
Diluted black dye in many many layers did the trick.
Detail in pewter and bronze.

Any and all comments are welcome.


























Thanks for looking.


Regards
/Magnus

I like the way the sheath follows the contour of the finger choil. This blade shows creativity. Good job.

That's a beautiful package, both the knife and sheath are very nice and clean. Would I be out of line to ask what something similar would cost?
