    Nice wee knife. Blade has a nice narrow point making it ideal for cutting in those difficult to reach places. Wood is cross cut Bubinga which is very hard, strong and has a high natural oil content making it very resistant to fluid ingress. Oiled and then waxed to give it a glow. Remaining components are vulcanized red fibre, dyed and stabilized box elder and brass.

    Hope you like it and thanks for looking.

    That's lovely - not just a very usable shape for a stalking knife but also beautifully composed and finished.

    Very nice David. Did you make the blade? If not who did?

    And another question - do you make your own sheath or do you get someone to do that for you? I've made a few knives now but never take them into the field because I haven't made the sheath. I want to but don't have much clue how to get started.
    It's a good looking knife, I hope that it lives up to your expectations.

    Now that is a wood that not many know about.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    The blade is by Brostrom. Very nice profile and as Willie says a very usable shape. Leather work is my Achilles heel ! Takes me longer to make the sheath than the knife. Hence all my sheaths are simple but built to last as I do not want to have to do the job again ! Knife is not for me but it is not going far from home, about 100 yards, so I am sure I will hear how it's fairing.

    I agree SS it is not a commonly used wood.......unless you make harps. Its natural hardness and oil can make it a bit of a pain to work with but now that folk have seen it and the kind of finish you can achieve I hope they might consider it if they are planning a wee project.

    Again thank you all for your kind words, much appreciated.

    Bubinga has been used in archery bow handles I was using it over 30 years ago
