Yet another Old Hickory project!
This one started out as an Old Hickory Buffalo Skinner that I got in a trade with Bill on BCUSA. It looked like this to start:
I ground it into a Nessmuk-like shape with a large finger choil, rounded pommel etc:
Then I sanded and soaked the handle in mineral oil for a nice dark, smooth finish:
I discovered that the sheath I made for my personal bushie knife actually fits the Nessie better, so I stuck it in there.
