Well heres my necker finshed, no sheath yet. I originally used eucalyptus burr scales but the glue wouldnt bond properly to the oily wood so i had to remove them. I used a nice piece of walnut instead, which is light and very stable, and has both dark lines and ripples accross both scales.

Specs
2mm 01, scandi grind
Walnut handle with white liners
Blade 2.75 "
Handle 4.25"
OL 7"
Not weighed it yet but it is light.

Pics are a bit dark. I will take some more tomorrow. It looks a bit like it has a forge finish but it hasn't.
