This is my third home made knife. The blade is the one I bought from Inspector 71, it is a laminated blade with forge finish by Bjarne Rasmussen.

I'm not sure what kind of wood the handle is made from. It is very dense, I'm guessing it could be lignum but am happy to be corrected on that.

I'm really pleased with how the sheath turned out - the stitching is my best effort yet and looks good from both sides.

Magnus I think you could be right. The wood had a very distinctive smell as I planed and sanded it.

Thanks

Is it done with a mortised tang?

well done, i was wondering about the blade fit too!, it does look like you've split the handle to fit the blade then glued it back together..

Yes, I lost patience with the other method of drilling out a solid block. This time I split the block in two and then used a router to fit the blade. Then I glued it all up with epoxy.
