Making the “Puget Sound Dagger” Day 1

Blade length: 2.00 in.
Total length: 4.75 in.
The blade is hand engraved and carved 1080 carbon steel with a full tang.  
The handle is hand engraved 410 stainless steel with copper pins and inlaid copper barnacles.

Here’s the first of a new knife.  I cut it out of the steel bar you see below the knife, filed the blade shape and flats, and cut out the middle to lighten it up.

This is a full day’s work so far, not including all the planning.
