    Here's my latest, a utility/fighting knife inspired by the venerable Ka-Bar military knife. The A2 tool steel blade (cold blued) is 7" x 1 1/4", brass guard, with a butt cap of hardened 1084, also blued. Leather stacked handle, finished with layers of super glue, linseed oil/shellac, varnish and finally wax. About 12" overall length, hardened to about Rc 57/59.
