    Re: Yew

    Great looking knife, really like yew myself.
    Just wondering about the positioning of the pins/rivets.
    They seem quite far from either end of the scales.
    Any chance of the scales pulling away from the tang?
    Did I say that I like the knife?

    What's the steel?

    Re: Yew

    Thanks Camperman,

    It was originally meant to have bolsters which is why the pins start quite far back but it didn't happen due to time constraints. The handles have epoxy pins through the tang holes keyed into the wood so I think they are pretty unliley to come away but I don't have any knives in long term service to confirm this...

    Steel is D2 so not ideal for a kitchen knife but does the job.

    D2 should be fine as long as it's kept dry.
    You should post an update in 6 months and show us the patina.

    Great looking knife. A number of my personal knives are in D2 and I've, like's been stated, never had much problems with them as long as they're not locked in a wet sheath for a while.

    My favourite wood for handles. Looks like it'll be a demon in the kitchen too. Excellent.

    Thanks Guys,

    Stamp is actually an etch with my home made etching tool made with info from the BB website. Works quite well but the patterns are a bit finicky, I get them from US tech, I have seen some different ones which have a bluish colour does anyone know where to get those for me to try?
