    Working on something a little different. Deer antler and Damascus steel. Both are rejects/offcuts from work that I toyed with until I could get something useable out of them.

    Damascus blade and guard hardened, tempered and etched. I have a couple more arty things I want to do to it all before I fit up and glue.

    Nearly there. Fit up done with a pre-glue. and all ground together. All the parts are taped and waxed before gluing, so I can pull it all apart and do the finishing touches on the steel before re-etching and re-gluing. Hopefully then it will all line up again.

    This little beauty has been a fiddly one, a learning curve and an enjoyable challenge. Deer antler and Damascus steel. I've a couple of little spots to tidy up before releasing it, but it's pretty much done. A lovely addition to any collection and a sharp, handy little blade. I wonder now what to call my little invention?
