Got into knife making recently because I’ve always been interested in working with metal and I wanted to combine my woodworking with it, so figured making edged weapons was my next endeavor. This knife was my first venture into knife making and is for my friend.
I used walnut because there is a lot of walnut where he lived. Once I figure out how to make a good sheath to go with it then it will be complete:)

Very nice knife! The shape and the walnut are great together. I like the multiple pins and bet it was a bear to get them all aligned, but you pulled it off well!

Thank you guys, it was a beast trying to get the pins in, I tried doing it all at once, but failed and had to start all over with new walnut scales and do each pin one at a time…something I don’t know if I will attempt again in the future!
