This is a knife I forged from file steel and has pierced brass scales overlaid onto cherry slabs. Decorative file work originating on the tapered tang and continuing half way down the spine of the blade. This piece is approximately 10 1/4" long, hand filed and polished. There is a leather covered sheath with a brass liner and frog I made that is not pictured. I'll be offering this for sale at Ft. Fred next week.
