That is one fine piece of work--one question--What is tung oil?

Paleface. It was just something I sketched up to fit the blade.

With the knife done. I am going to start another build along for the leather sheath. Stay tuned.

WOW! Nice work. Would you mind telling how you worked the handle down?

How do you polish the blade up?  It looked pretty beat before, is it all hand sanding or do you attack it with some kind of power tool?

Did this blade need to be heat treated and tempered?

Very nice!!
I am sure you will be satisfied with the quality of the blade.
My grandfather used the same steel to cut gras on his farm.
Different shape of course.

I use a belt sander to remove material from the handle.

The blade is very hard without heat treating.

Yes i guess it is hard, but i think it is easy to sharpen.
I think that many of the huntingknives are to hard so i find them diffecult to sharpen.
I like the old ones.
You are making a beautiful knife!!
