Default Different look at a knife.

I actually took the stacked leather off this blade even though several people wanted it. The handle was just too light and not a good balance. Yep; this is weird, but then again I like to think outside the box. May be the reason I so many repeat customers. The handle is Stabilized South African Springbok horn. The blade is 416 layers of Alabama Damascus 4 inches from top to copper guard. Tucked away in a water buffalo sheath. Has a real good balance, I was going to take the end of it and cut if off and put on a cap, but just felt too good in my hand to mess with it.
Today I'm going to put together a neck knife.

You should've posted a before and after picture. I think the horned handle looks pretty cool.
