I'm working on a stacked leather hunting knife. This one will have CPM154 stainless steel blade with a brass guard. Spacers will be brass and green. I'll try to post a pic of every step so you guys can see how this knife is progressing.

So here's a pile of material. I rough cut the blade. Heat treat is next

no scandi, full flat grind. Wonder if I should make a video of the build or just pictures?

Yes. Thank you


IMO- the couple of stacked leather handles I've
done taught me to cut em to a rough oval or
whatever shape beforehand. The ones I took
down from squares were a genuine P.I.T.A.
Good Luck. Looks promising

I just do it from squares. A 36 grit belt makes short work of the leather. It's going to be something like this

That is a very handsome knife, Dan. Appears it would do about 95% of the chores out in the hunting and camping fields anyone would encounter.

took a brass bar for the guard and fitted it to the blade. Some trial and error but I think I got it.

Your work is on a whole other level to the majority of knife makers. Extremely talented.

All shaped, heat treated. Guard is fitted and spacers and leather cut. Ready to rough shape the guard and then braze a bolt to the tang.

Interesting to watch it come together. Sent this thread to a buddy and he commented on the size of your hands. He thought you must have pretty good dexterity for having softballs on the end of your arms...

Pretty sure he wants this knife, too... He's Jonesing...

Roughed out with a 36 grit belt just takes a few minutes

Heat up the leather and let some bee's wax absorb into it. We're almost done

Looking very good. Two questions if you don't mind. Did you get all your compression for the stack by tightening butt plate? Do you have a preferred epoxy or will any good epoxy work?
