Steel: AEB-L stainless steel @ 60 HRC
Grind: Flat w/20dps working edge
Finish: Hand rubbed satin
Scales: Opal G10, tuxedo vulcanized fiber liners (white/black/white), brass pins & lanyard tube
Sheath: Custom Kydex, w/Slim UltiClip 2.2

My niece graduates high school this weekend, and part of her gift from us was a nice little 3" EDC setup for versatile & discreet purse/other carry options when she leaves home for college. The stainless AEB-L & G10 will be virtually maintenance free for her, and the semi-transparent scales add some "pretty" for a bright young lady. I hope it becomes a faithful companion of hers for each and every day.

Beautiful art and work, friend.
Will be treasured, I'm sure.

I used to collect Collins blades and they used green horn for their handle material on some models which I always thought was great looking stuff.

That's some downright Shield Maiden shit.

Now teach her the guilt-free techniques for stabbystabbystabbying it between the ribs of an Orc/Goblin, along with retention while wet - you don't want to have to make her a replacement if you don't have to.

What kind of blank did you use? Trying to wrap my head around this. What a crazy beautiful knife
Thank you! I’d been itching to see how that opal G10 was going to finish out, and that sea foam greenish color is what her mother told me was her favorite color, so I think it worked out well.

No premade blanks if that’s what you are asking. This one started life as one of my sketches transferred to a stick of flat stock that I rough cut with a bandsaw then grind the profile, distal taper, flats, plunges & bevels to my design. I heat treat to meet the intended design utility in a digitally controlled vertical air bath kiln and double-tempered in a controlled oven to final specified values. Handle materials are selected, prepped, and mounted, then sculpted for fit & ergonomics, polished & finished. Then the custom Kydex sheath was formed, riveted, trimmed & finished.

I really enjoy it, and I especially like being able to tailor the steels & HT and find unique & beautiful handle materials.
