Show and Tell

I needed a good piece of work to take on my upcoming trip to Dragonfly Forge; it’s time for “show and tell!”

Blade is high layer-count 1095/wrought iron (about 110 layers) on the faces of 1095 core, polished to near mirror then cold parkerized in phosphoric acid and manganese dioxide.

Handle is resin-soaked spalted maple with bog oak bolsters. Rear bolster has a silver pin in it.
