Oak handled Scandinavian style bushcraft knife

Well, I had to crack in the end and decided to make another knife.
 I've had a break for a while as I wanted to do other things bushcraft wise and of course real life also gets in the way.

 There' a lot that goes into these knives from forging out the steel, grinding, heat treatment, sharpening, and multi section handles. There great to do though and very absorbing in both attention and time!

This one is forged from a spring coil and handled in Oak, pewter and leather.
I'm rather pleased with it. Just the sheath to make now while the flaxseed oil cures.
