Nice!! What did you make the blade out of? It looks as though it is attached to the handle as if possibly an old knife reworked? Regardless, that is very nice!

Thanks, Pete. No, it's not a reworked knife. I used my favorite mystery scavenged steel for the blade. I'll post some process pics when I get a chance.

Wow. Nice work. Looks like a custom made Mora 140. Great spoon too.

Great looking knife . How far down the handle does the tang extend? Also how did you drill the rectangular hole(Bit of a noob when it comes to knife making)?

Here's a shot of the tang on this one. Making one now in which the tang goes all the way through. Though I've never had one of these partial tangs fail, with hard use.

Good work.  I like the blade shape and the size.

Looks fully adequate to me......I doubt you're going to be doing much batonning with it anyway. ;D
