    this one was a lot of experimenting, first time making and brazing a brass guard, first time doing serrations, and also leaving a satin finish as i usually to a forced patina... also first time making a knife this size, 10.5" blade , 15" overall. i am quite happy with the results... blade is 1/8" thick so the quench was a bit scary...
