My client suggested that I make a Model 16 Pathfinder inspired knife at the same time, and with the same materials, so he would have a matching pair.

Good idea! So I went to work immediately.
Filing away on the Niolox blade blank.

Here's the heat treated blade together with all the necessary materials to make this into a beautiful little hunter.



The difference between a nr. 25 and a nr. 26 is evident.

Have you shipped any knives to Germany?

I'm thinking I might commission a project for my cousin down in Koblenz.

Soldered the nickel silver guards onto the blades with Staybrite solder. Next step is to clean up the solder joints.
