A little knife in W2 and some unique Koa...

Here's some pics of one I finished recently for a collector. I think this is a mean looking little knife. Very compact and lightweight.

Hand forged from W2 steel, clay quenched and etched
7 3/8" overall, 3 3/8" blade, .160" at the ricasso with full distal taper
False edge, just shy of sharp
Heavily rounded spine and ricasso edge
Black g-10 collars
Thorn and vine fileworked titanium spacer
Stabilized Hawaiian Koa

Claude Scott made the sheath and did a great job of it too!

All comments and discussion welcome.

Outstanding knife John, you seem to one up with each post. Love the collars and spacer and that Koa is nice, real nice.

Love the handle material almost has that 3d look to it. Very well done.

Nice piece John! As usual the "flow" is very attractive!
