    Thanks guys! Gotta love these little villagers. I think I'll try my hand at making a wooden scabbard for it. I'll post pictures when I do.

    Here is the scabbard I made to go with it. This knife was pretty much a gift at only $25. I am really in love with this little villager. Thanks Ms. Martino. [​IMG]

    Thank you. I used oak. My brother gave me a slat from an old oak pallet he got from his work. After I had already started the project I read about how people tend to use softer wood for easier carving. I can see why. This one was pretty HARD to carve. Nice and strong though.

    That's good looking oak. It is hard to work on though, took some effort for sure.

    Pugs, that knife in your avatar makes me heart skip a beat every time I see it. The sheath is a knock out too although it rides too low for a sitting person.
