Collaboration through the times - WIP

 This is a knife I made quite some time ago in 2015 ( boy, time´s flying. The blade is forged from a blade blank I found in the woods and that might date back to the 18th or 19th century. It is refined steel or crucible steel with a carbon content of roundabout 0,6-0,7%. The handle is reindeer antler with bronze fittings.
 I have to elaborate the carving somwhat still and tan it in something else than dragon´s blood varnish, and then it´ll be ready for a sheath.
 I really like this project. I take this really slow, because the process means a lot to me, and I take it to be a huge responsibility.
