I've gotten this knife to functional. It still needs a little time with some sandpaper to finish up some of the fiddly bits. There is also the decision to be made whether or not to bead blast the blade. This is supposed to be a working blade. Maybe we should call it the "Big Bushcraft Companion".
This would have been done sooner but -22f with -35f windchill is no fun in a shop with a small wood stove and lots of drafts.

|Maybe we need to send a couple to Oleg Volk to show us how to do a good photograph of a blade.|
|Soon....the fun with Kydex sheaths start.|
