    I have wanted to have a go at this for a while and after being inspired by Stuarts Mitchell's WIP thread I gave it a go. I am delighted with the result and the second festive project is now being planned !

    Thanks Rake Aboot, really enjoyed doing it although the sheath is causing me a few headaches.

    Its the blade from a Karesuando kit a few years ago that has sat around gathering dust. Handle is buffalo horn, bone, red liners with a nickel silver bolster. All sanded and then polished to within and inch of its life !

    I think the point of Mr Mitchell's post was to encourage you to buy one of his knives, not make one of your own !!

    Good job anyway.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    I made one if these kits for my birthday last year and it surprised me how well it turned out. Now I've started making a matched pair from scratch. Just need to heat treat the metal as they're both cut out and shaped. Very addictive once you start.
