Wormy Ash Handled Knife

For this one Shane wanted to do something a little different and use a piece of wormy ash for the handle material.  Taking inspiration from a period pistol barrel, the handle was first shaped octagon, then transitioning into 16 sided facets, and lastly ending in a wedding band motif.  The mounts were all fabricated by hand and the blade was traditionally hand forged from 1084 high carbon steel with a forged in distal taper.  The silver pommel cap was traditionally hand chased with one of Shanes original flower designs.
