I did share this over at SFI but thought I'd get some feedback from some of the folks here. This was my first attempt at knife making with the help of my brother-in-law. I didnt make the blade, but just put all the fittings together. Had the scabbard made by a custom saddlemaker - wasnt exactly what i wanted but he spent alot of time on it so its ok.

Looks very nice to me. Very clean, too. Putting the fittings all together with no major gaps and tight tolerances is harder than the blademaking, or at least equally difficult (speaking for myself, anyway).

What is the handle made of?

The grip is just raw deer antler from the Utah mountains.
