    Hi

    End of the bucks for me see's the start of knife making over the winter. This is a Russian blade ( Molotobec ) with a false top edge. Handle is brass bolster and inserts with buffalo horn and stabilised and dyed box elder. Filed, sanded and polished to within an inch of its life. Hope you like it.

    David

    ps There is a small amount of buffing compound visible. Unfortunately I didn't see it when taking the pictures but I am sure you get the idea.

    Looks really good buffalo horn is a nightmare to polish I bought a polishing mop that goes on the end of a drill then clamp the drill in the vise that's after sanding to 2000 by hand.

    quite a pretty knife that would have equally suited a much smaller blade.

    Nice one bud.
