1095 3″ scagel pattern slipjoint in elk antler with brass front bolsters


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 front bolsters, liners and pins, and elk antler scales. 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.
