Finished up one I've been working on for a while now. The blade is about 11" long, 1 5/8" wide, 3/16" thick. It's a san-mai construction with the outermost patternwelded section being 1084 and some air-hardening steel(was supposed to have been 15n20...but obviously wasn't). The next more contrasting layer is 1095/1050/1022. The center core is 1084. Handle is caribou (from Geno), wrought iron and red brass.

Thanks for taking the time to do the step by step Don. That pattern reminds me of some kind of poison lizard.

Great work Don. The blade is very authentic and that pattern is great. The caribou looks pretty good too :)
