Brand X

Some more dyed osage orange, buggy wheel iron, and a nice piece of Bruno 84. This is a blade I forged in April after I did a tanto forging demonstration at the Oregon Show. I tried to add a little tanto flavor to this one. This knife has a 10 1/2" blade, 15 1/2" overall, and it weighs 12oz.

Would not want to find myself on the business end of that one Raymond. That's nasty!

That handle is perfect for the, "almost tanto" blade. Osage came out great. And I love the gun butt hilt plate.

Love the knife. Great lines.

chiger,

That's a nice one Ray. Most of my Osage is oily, and I've never dyed it. I really like the color your getting, are you using leather dye? I think that's an awesome hamon too.

Larry, I have never thought the osage to be oily but now that you mention it is. The 3 Some I did last week I had a heck of a time dying and this knife would only work after several coats of the alcohol based leather dye. I'm just about out of osage now. This is one wood I like working with but I can't stand the natural color. Depending on how the wood is cut its got some really nice grain to.

Give me about 10 days examining this closely and I might (???) be able to find something less than perfect------------------but don't count on it!! Sandy
