A little side project when I did the SS knife set. Blade is from HCtool steel, double edge is ground and polished in traditional form. Hilt, black steel leather wrapped with a walnut pommel. Latigo leather sheath (the stuff I use on tak and saddle), modern snap and rivets with a paracord retainer. And on a side note; These traditional style blades are more work but a lot of fun to make, you feel as though you are transported to a different time period.
