Towards a serviceable bushcraft knife-Another try;-)

For a long time now I have been trying to optimize the traditional bushlore style knife. I have found that my favourite style of handle is very comfortable for the hand, even though it looks a bit thorny;-). I have also experimented with some offset to make for a more powerful position when cutting with great force or chopping. The grind is set higher, for it is made from spring steel, and has a spine thickness of some 6 mm and will get a progressive selective temper, maybe even a bainite heat treatment, who knows? As for length, it´s a good 11,8 cm long. Oh, and the drillings are no drillings, they are hot punched;-). I´ll keep you informed!
