Vintage dirk style knife from Past Work

A mid week Look at a custom knife from my past work
collection of pictures.

This piece was made awhile back, maybe 2007 or so.

Piece represents the style of early vintage dirk type knives.

A knife similar in design is shown in Swords & Blades of
the American Revolution by: George C. Neumann on page 236

The blade if I remember right was about 6 to 7 inches in length
with deep grooved file work.  The handle was aged stag
with steel pins and the forward collar was aged raw steel.

Sheath was hand stitched and set up to wear high on a belt
with some tooling and carved line work on the face.

Thank you
