Here is mine. She is always by my side. I forged the blade from 1084 spring steel and differentially heat treated. The Ferrul is a peice of wrought iron with a nickel spacer. The handle is curly maple with silver wire inlay and brass accents. She is a working machine and handle all the tasks I require in a good working knife here on my farm.

I'm not a knife guru or enthusiast, just own a few for general purpose and hunting, but that's a good looking blade you got there. You made it yourself? Nice job! :thumb:

I carry the Spyderco Stretch 2 these days but carried my Buck 110 for many years. I'm in a position now where the bosses might frown on carrying a Buck on my belt and it's a bit bulky for my pocket. The Stretch is a little bit lighter and a little bit thinner. I also like the blade material better than the Buck.

That's a beauty!

Yes I did make this my self, along with about 40 others. To answer another question, I have both gas and coal forges and use both for different things.

That's very nicely done, and I like the spear/wharncliffe tip profile! I'm in the process of making EDCs for my family and a few friends, all about 6 1/2" out of 3/16" 1095 from Aldo. I've always carried folders, and won't stop, but a nice stout fixed knife sure is handy to have on you.

Here it is after about 6 months of hard use on the farm. It's done everything from cutting shingles to cutting tomatoes. I love the patina carbon steels take on. If I were to have put a factory made stainless blade through the same rigorous testing, I don't think there would be much of it left. I would have had to sharpen every few hours. This blade gets an edge touch up once a week.

When just out running around I carry this 1095 carbon steel Stag Handled Skinner I had made for me by a knifesmith buddy of mine. I made the beaded lanyard and sheath for it. When going to town I carry this BUCK/TOPS CSAR Knife with a paracord lanyard.
