    Warncliffe - San mai pattern welded and sheoak

    Another one..
    San mai stainless pattern welded steel sabre ground ( using a jig). Lace sheoak handle with green vinyl liner.
    Kydex pouch with tek lok style belt loop ( not proper one a copy).

    More sheoak??
    That's right I bought pretty much 20 kilos of it years ago when Brads Burls closed ( a Sydney wood shop). Brass corby rivets and thong hole.

    This one's been sold to a guy I've known for 30 years or more.

    And who doesn't love video spam.

    Thanks for the comments.

    The handle was sanded up to 800 grit I think then given a sanding with a magic sponge ( i read somewhere that is kinda like 3000 grit if internet forum talk is to be believed). Also coated with superglue then lightly sanded back then oiled. I was curious to see if really fine grids brought out the grain pattern more.
