A new pack-able draw knife out of 1095

I had a little fun in the shop making some new stuff for myself.  I don't get to do that as much as I would like.  The idea came from some youtube videos.  There was a few different styles and I liked the way this style packed down.
Roughed out and ready for grind.

Sharpened and ready for use.  It zipped through some poplar like butter. I'm very pleased with the edge.

The pen is for scale reference if you want to make your own.  I wrapped it in some scrap leather and tied it with some of the nettle cordage I made to keep with the bushcraft theme.
