This is a smaller version hunting knife, sometimes referred to as a "bird & trout knife. The blade is made of stainless steel, I think made in Japan. I bought it from a knife-making supply catalog in semi finished form. The handle is the tip of a whitetail deer antler and the tang guard is brass. Blade length is approx 3 1\/4" and overall length is a little less than 8".

The brass tang guard is soldered to the blade and after the blade was epoxied into the end of the antler, I cross-drilled the handle & inserted a brass pin to further secure the blade. The finger guard is my own design. After the pin was peened into place, the excess that mushroomed outward was ground off & the handle was then sanded smooth to allow a smooth transition from the guard to the handle. After repeatedly sanding with finer grades of sandpaper to remove all file and scratch marks, the whole assembly was buffed to a shiny finish using a cotton wheel and polishing compound.

The sheath is custom made for the knife. It was hand-riveted and hand-sewn. The handle is held tight by piece of deer antler with a hole drilled through so that the drawstrings (leather lace) can be tightened.

Whether you use this knife (it can be sharpened to near razor sharpness) or just put in you collection, I hope that you enjoy it. One of the pleasures of making a knife with an antler handle, what is created is unique and unmistakably "one-of-a-kind"!!!

Thank you and have a great day!!!
