This knife pattern was requested specifically by the customer. It was a copy of a knife he had made several years ago for his son. But he wanted one for himself. It is made with a 300 layer ladder pattern of CruForge V and 15n20. The customer sent me 2 pieces of Bos De Arc or Osage Orange to use for the handle. 3 Brass Corby style bolts help hold the scales in place. Sweet little package if I say so myself.
