1095 3″ scagel pattern slipjoint in elk antler


here is my take on a great 3″ scagel pattern slipjoint from Jerry Van Eizenga’s book on scagel style folders. this one has brass liners and pins, and elk antler scales from a 6 point bull I harvested about 7-8 years ago. the blade features my 1095 high carbon steel with multiple quench and 3 tempers and is ground nice and thin, the way a small every day using pocketknife should be.
