Scout II in Custom Composit
This custom Scout II was forged from 1095 high carbon steels and then differentially heat treated to revel a hamon or temper line that is brought out by hand sanding the blade to a very fine finish and then repeatedly etching it in ferric chloride to its finished state. This knife about 9 inches in overall length with a 4.75 inch cutting edge.
The handle material is a one of a kind pice of resin materials that have been double cast to create a very unique geometric pattern. Additionally the contoured handle has been fitted with two black micarta pins and lanyard tube.
Premium Wickets & Craig vegetable tanned leather was used to make the sheath which was then cut and dyed. With the assembled sheath finished, I've added a hand carved lucky skull to keep those pesky spirits at bay ;).
