This has been a fun project! Started off wanting something larger sized and sorta primal feeling. I thought I nailed it first time out with this: After a few days of handling it, I decided I did not love it in the heavyweight form. Back out to the shop for some slow cool grinding!!!! Now it is finished to this: Overall it is 15 7/8in with a 10 1/2in blade. It used to weigh in at 26oz and is now 22oz. Still has some heft to it but it feels so much better now The scales are green/black G10 and the blade is my usual 5160 with a nice temper line.
