    I am done! I will include a kydex sheath and a lanyard, if I can take part.
    Handle material is a bit softer then I would like it to be, but I think it will withstand normal use. Either my home stab wasn't as good or the wood was too soft to start with, but I swear I couldn't dent it with a nail when I started. Now a hard press will be leave a very small mark. Not sure if it is up to the standard. What do you guys think, pass this time or can I take part?

    Thanks, my main worry is due to the handle being a bit softer than it should be. As said, I think it something I realised at the the very end and I think it will cope with normal use.

    I had a knife I thought I could put up, even though I dropped out earlier. Unfortunately, a friend of mine bought it. With business being slow, I took the sale. Sorry guys.

    Finished. Just knocked out the sheath. I machined the knife and roughed out the bevel on my CNC machine, then hand sanded the bevels. CNC’d the handles as well. Blade is D2.
