The first Spyderco Mule Team blade in 52100, handled in Yew Burr

I started this one back in 2013 with a carbon fibre and orange G10 handle. (First shown here) It didn't go to plan so had the handle removed and then was left for some time waiting for the right materials to present themselves.
Luckily I had the opportunity to purchase an amazing set of Yew Burr scales. They really are a wonder of nature!
I have also added a forced patina to the blade surface, the steps shown here: Forced patina.
52100 is a carbon steel so will rust without care or oxide / patina even with care. Forcing a patina at the start can negate that, plus it looks cool!

Thankfully a leather sheath suits this very well!
