Made this one in 1983.
440C Cyro treated Jantz or TKMS blade blank. I forget which.
I taper-tanged and did some file work on it.
Guard & thong liner are stainless steel, scales are Zebrawood with homemade Loveless style SS bolts & brass nuts. The guard is pinned and silver soldered to the blade.
Sheath is a force fit high-ride lined with green suede lining.

I just love it when you share your projects from yesteryear RC, there allways great!
That looks like a dandy of a drop point, the Twisted style file work is a nice touch, I like the sheath to!
You sir have got talent.

Wow, that's some really nice work. One day when I have less irons in the fire, or more time to tend the irons I have, I want to do some knife making. I've made a few in the past and enjoyed it. Good job with that one, I'd be really proud to have made it!

Your leather work is outstanding - and that is not meant to be a reflection on your blades at all.

Did you put the bolts in from opposite sides and is that why they appear to be different radiuses?
Dang, I wish you were still making sheaths.

No, I make my own Loveless style bolts out of stainless steel flat-head screws and homemade brass "nuts" & "bushings".
