This was a Christmas gift I made last year for my hunting partner that always wanted a Damascus knife. The handle is stabalized Black Ash Burl, the black insert is waterbuffolo horn, I didn’t make the blade that was from a forge in Idaho (maybe someday I’ll have a forge). The stand is Sitka blacktail antler and a piece of maple burl for the base. I have around 100hrs into the project. It’s overall length is 8.5 inches with a 4 inch blade. If you don’t want to make your second knife, never make your first.
