    The wave was originally designed for a couple of SEALs to act as a finger guard to block other blades that may glance down the spine when fighting. The opening ability was just a byproduct of it ;)

    Comparing any Emerson to my SYKCO Yard Hook, I never would have come to that conclusion.[​IMG]

    I picked up a Helle Utvaer blade blank and put together my own. I've never been a big fan of curly birch handles, so I used black micarta scales finished to 400 grit. I took about a 1/16" off the finger side of the tang, as this knife is known to be just a touch on the small side. It made a world of difference in comfort though.
    I wanted to stay more traditional with the sheath so I tried my hands at leather. I used the kydex press and ended up with a compact sheath with excellent retention. Honestly I like the sheath so much I'll be doing more leather work in the future.
    After a couple months of daily use now, I have to say that Helle knows what they're doing. The knife is great, gets razor sharp and holds the edge better than it should. When it does get dull, the sandvik steel takes a new edge quickly.
    Overall I'm very happy with it, I spent right around $100 total on everything to make the knife and sheath. Retail for the knife with the curly birch handles and leather sheath from Helle is $250, and I'm glad Helle gives more people a chance to own a great knife by offering blade blanks to the public.

    ^^ That's nice work... and a lot of work, too. The black scales look excellent.

    Thank you. It doesn't feel like work when you enjoy doing it. Overall it took me about a week and a half, a couple hours a night after work. I don't have any bench sanders or grinders, so after the roughing with a Dremel there was a lot of hand filing and sanding.

    Bought this old warhorse while active duty USMC 0341 in about 1989. It went with me to Desert Shield and OIF III.
