I think Andrew should video the knife making process.

What he describes so far is fascinating.  The billet of Damascus steel is now knife shaped.  The knife will have a brass liner under the scales and a brass section about 40mm long up near the blade.  The main part of the grips will be blackbutt burl and he has made up the pins with green filler for contrast.   The sheath will be embossed leather.

I am really looking forward to holding it.

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
