I finished this this weekend. Started off as an experiment to see if I could pull it off. I am really happy with how the K-Bar came out. Not sure if I like the presentation, I will have to think of a better way to display it. If you have any suggestions let me know.

It looks great. The only thing I can think of would be to make the holders a little taller and add a piece connecting the two, say about 2 1/2 inches tall so you can add a personal placard with rank insignias on each side or othe personal touches.

That or do away with the holders and display the K-bar like it’s stuck in the base.

That’s it, I’m tapped out for recommendations..ha. It truly looks great as is though…

I do like the Stuck in the base idea, That could be really cool. Thanks.
