    Another of the 1095 hunters

    Finally finished this 1095 hunter Iíve have hanging up for a few weeks I have a bad habitat of starting lots of projects at once that said makes sense to do a group heat treat while the kilns on and hot!!the blade has been ferric etched with a few different layers of mustard and Sriracha patina. The scales are cut from a block of stabilised yellow splattered Tamarind with black and white G10 spacers and ebony bolsters. As always let me know your thoughts ect and thanks for looking!!

    very nice.have you considered narrowing your ricasso height wise? So the edge is a few mm below?With repeated sharpening and use, this one will soon have an edge above the ricasso, reducing clearance for cutting.Very nice work though. Looks great
