Damascus hand forged in the USA. Handle made from a petrified pickle (just kidding). It's really Stabilized Green Dyed Box Elder Burl. Mosaic Pins. Damascus bolster. I loved the shaped of this blade. Fun and hard working!

Dang! That's a beaut. Love that hefty handle. Looks like you could get a good grip on that. Nice work, Blackhorse!

Thanks, both of you.

I have really large hands, and maybe tend toward a good sized handle for that reason, but I hate a skinny butted knife. This one feels really good and by putting a good bit of lateral girth on the handle the control is SO much better.

I also don't typically prefer a finger notch at the bolster, but the last two I've made were set up just exactly right to work well. Ya learn something new every day.

I kind of look at this one as a big boot knife, or one worn under the off side shoulder on a horizontal rig.

Lastly, I really did the last one and this as a set, meant to be carried as a double set in the same sheath...but they just ended up so massive I let that go.

that's a great looking knife.

It would be perfect for ridding the house of boggarts.

My choice would be a field sheath made by Harry Savage. He does my leather work and is the best, to my mind, for a number of reasons...superb materials and workmanship, reasonable cost, flexible design, etc. I'd also put a pouch on it for something like a Fallkniven DC3 diamond sharpener. Good stuff.

Bringing this back from the grave to show off a bit. I ended up purchasing this knife from Blackhorse when he offered it for sale in the trading post. I've been very happy with the knife and it has been proudly displayed in my man cave right next to my pipes. He does high quality work and the knife a work of art in my opinion.

I've always wanted to get a sheath for it but before now I never found the right one or the right person to make it. Well a few weeks ago I found out one of my co-workers does leather work as a hobby and after a few discussions about what I wanted he agreed to make a custom sheath for me.

Here a few pictures of the toothpick in it's natural environment in its new sheath.
