This knife represents several “firsts” for me.  It’s the first time I’ve done a coffin handle, and the first time I’ve used a frame handle construction.  The 5 1/4″ blade is hand satin finished 1080 steel at RC 60 with drawn swedges.  The guard and pins are 416 stainless steel.  The handle is African blackwood with a red/black/red G10 frame.  Overall length is 10 1/4″.  This knife will be available at the Knifemaker’s Guild show in Louisville, KY in September.
