    I finished these up a while ago, but just now got around to grabbing some pics. They are both 154CM .093 thick. They have an approx. 2.75" blade length. One is full flat ground and stonewashed, the other is a saber grind (with swedge) and was acid stone washed. Both feature G10 liners with black linen micarta scales.

    Once again, I did these with only hand tools with the exception of a drill press for the holes. The only thing I outsourced was the heat treating.

    As always, I'm open to questions, comments, and insults.
