    Elk scales with a piece of aged 1095

    I made this one for a friend. I aged the blade and domed the pins. I kept a pretty good amount of bark on these scales, had to do a lot of smelly grinding on the inside though. No blowout or potholes while drilling out the pin holes either. I'm pretty excited to give this one to him. Thanks...
