I went a little larger than I am used to, but learned a few lessions along the way.

The blade is 7 inches and the sheath uses snaps to attach to ones belt.

Spacer is sheep horn, and the handle is old stag. I attached a brass butt cap which made for a nice finish.

Nice George! Looks like a real chopper. If you get a chance I'd like to see some better pics of the handle, sheep horn and stag sounds like a unique combination! Keep up the great work.

Hi Ed,

Yes, the new owner and I tested it for edge flex, rope cuts, wood chopping (4x4) and point percing.

Edge flex 5 x's each side. Rope cuts 90 times and edge started to fade. Took about 50 cuts (after sharpening) into a 4x4 and got good heavy chips. Also cut a few branches about 3/4 to 1 inch dia in 2-3 wacks. I also tested the point on a 1" aluminum plate by dropping from 24 inches then thrusted downward. No distortion or damage (other than to the aluminum.)

He wanted it to shine, so I gave him what he wanted.

Thanks for your comments
