This is the second Staniforths Lofty Wiseman Survival Tool I have rehandled. The first was in Yew and can be seen here: Yew Handled Lofty Wiseman Survival ToolI have a feeling these are all under the Trueways Survival umbrella, with the design tweaked by Chris Caine but may be incorrect!
For the handle of this one I reshaped the profile to do away with the poor quality guard and used Red Mallee which has a subtle chatoyance / ripple in the grain. Under the Mallee is micarta made from black denim and the pins used are black carbon fibre.
The blade of this one had quite deep grind lines from manufacture so rather than trying for a perfect finish that would have involved removing a lot of steel, a random forced patina was applied using vinegar.
