Here ya go Griffin.

I guess it's called a kudu knife. It's a simple working knife very common in some areas of Iraq. I forget whether I traded for mine or bought it. It was allegedly hand made. It had some beautiful inlays in the handle.

If you can make me one of these, I'll buy it. It would be super cool if you can make me one from some of this bull born I've got.

By the way, did I ever upload pics of the bull horn?

Here's the knife... or same style anyway...

All done high gloss handle and copper pins with a little file work. It's all finished but my etched makers mark. But ill have to do that later because I'm having printer problems to make a new stencil.

I will see if I can find a pattern for a knife like that. And no I never saw a pic of the bull horn

It's done. And think all this stuff is reclaimed. The copper guard is the shank off a old industrial fuse And the wood was scrap at a cabinet shop. the thin copper was scrap from a local shop that restores furniture and the blade started its life as a 24inch industrial carbide tipped saw blade. Te copper pin I had left over from another project. Now all I have to do is etch the blade with my makers mark and get it in the mail.
