The Razorback - A Hand-Forged Hog Sticker

Scott forged this GHF Razorback over coal at the Harnett County Regional Fair in Lillington, NC back in May and just got around to heat treating and finishing it inbetween commissions. It's made of 5160 tool steel, has a hammer-marked finish, sharpened clip, and flame-grain walnut handle with nickel-silver pins.

Steel: 5160
Finish: "Rustic"
Overall Length: 13 1/2 inches
Blade Length: 8 1/2 inches
Handle: Flame grain walnut (from Burl Source)
Sheath: Leather huckleberry rig (in the works)

It's sort of a bowie, camp knife, chopper all-in-one, and we're calling it the Razorback because it's a wild hog sticker if I've ever seen one. Scott plans to make a leather huckleberry rig for this one, so stay tuned.
