    Default Damascus hunting knife

    This is my first hunting knife. Last February I made a multi stage Damascus billet at Charlie's shop that I wanted to make a knife out of. It took a long time to finally do something with it due to lack of time. But I needed something to take with me wo the Gembloux knife show next month so put some haste into making this.

    The steel is 1095 15N20 Damascus, made by hand in Charlie's forge.
    The guard is from a piece of brass stock I got from Lynn.
    And the handle is giraffe bone.

    The little slot between the finger grooves and the guard is for a locking strap of a sheath.

    I particularly like how the pattern comes out of the guard and how it goes into the tip

    Bruno, how deep does that tang run into the handle?

    Ok. The edge lengt, point to point, is 6.5"
    Overall length is just over 12"
