    Here is my latest. I have always admired the knives of Bill Scagel. I tried to capture his use of stacked leather and antler. It is hand forged 5160 with leather washers and a chunk of Sambar stag to finish it off.

    That is really, really great man! I too love that combination of stacked leather and antler. Unique and classic at the same time. Great work there I'd say!

    I don't know why so many knife makers admire Scagels trade marks. Yours is a pretty and very useful looking knife.

    Nice looking knife.

    You've certainly gotten the Scagel look with the handle, but the blade is far more traditional looking than the usual Scagel swept blade.

    Very good looking knife. I use the Scagel style grind in some of my knives.

    wunderbar

    Let's see.

    The blade profile is a good one. Nice point, but not fragile. Wide enough blade for strength.

    That double, but modest guard is nice too.

    The red leather is eye catching.

    And finally, the butt is rounded so nice, as not to chaffe the palm.

    Congratulations. A fine knife.

    {I wish I had it.}

    You no longer have to admire; so much, Scagel's work.

    Very nice indeed. I really like the blade shape.
