Custom Handle and Sheath

A customer in England had a custom blade that was made by Swedish knifemaker Julius Pettersson. He asked if I could make a handle for it in a style similar to one shown on an episode of Ray Mears Bushcraft TV show.

Here is the blade as I received it.

I drew up a couple of sketches

We decided to go with the first one using stag, buffalo horn spacers, Australian mallee, a nickel silver bolster. I added some red and brass accent lines.

Here is the handle glued up.

And the finished knife.

Next I made a custom fitted pouch sheath with a hammered finish that I felt complimented the rustic nature of the knife.

 Another one goes across the pond. Thanks Dean.
