Second in Series

I have decided to make a series of knives called Turtle Clan. This is the second in the series.
The blade is hand forged 1084FG and is 6 3/4" long and is 1 1/2" at the widest point. The handle is mule deer antler. The fittings are poured LF pewter. OAL is 11 3/4".
The sheath is veggie tan covered in rawhide from a drum head that someone gave me years ago. The cuff is brain tan deer, decorated with glass beads, bone drops and a LF pewter turtle.
Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome.

Drum skins. Never would have thought of that. Good looking package!

Thanks Ray. I had been looking at that drum head for years and thought what the heck.

That's a really great looking package Mike. I really like the poured pewter - how did you get the patina on it?

Dave, I used BC Super Blue liquid. Then a light buff with 0000 steel wool.
