The Grey Wolf

This project was a modification to the biggest blade I make. We took the "King Kong" blade and added a double row of saw teeth to the spine.

Profiled and rough ground

Double row of saw teeth milled into the spine

Fresh out of the 1850 degree oven for hardening

Final grinding

Choosing some nice sambar stag handle scales




Looking good!

Custom stencil acid etched into the blade

Now for some leather

Hand carved howling wolf

Vine filework on both sides of the handle

All finished!

This was a big project and as always, much appreciated. This one-of-a-kind special order has shipped to its new home in north Dakota.
