This is what I came up with for a carrying knife. Not the handiest but looks like I'm ready for a friendly bar fight.
Blade is A2 steel with brass and walnut handle. All made form scratch and my attempt at a sheath, that works as I hoped it would.

Pretty as a picture, as they say. I also like the brass on the pommel. I have always thought that
truly useful knives are just a bit "naked" when they lack that butt plate.  Just sayin....

Nice work!

Best Wishes,

Hi

I love the knife, good proportions nice work.  I like the sheath also, but would have left a little more knife showing.  Great simple working setup.  I have The Bowie Knife: Unsheathing an American Legend Hardcover by Norm Flayderman and they're some GAUDY stuff in there.

Yeah...I'm definitely from the "less-is-more"-school. I have searched-out a lot of pictures on GOOGLE Images and I like the more primative Native American stuff, but once a person gets past all of the fringe and beads and artificially aged stuff I have to wonder  just what I really have. Its true that I see posed pictures of 19th Century Native Americans with some pretty elaborate stuff.  but each time I see pictures of Scouts under real life conditions the sheathes are very utilitarian.  Just sayin...

Best Wishes,

The decorative stuff was done by the women. Unless the scout or other Westerner had a "close" relationship with a local woman, he had to buy stuff, or do it himself, and usually on the plain side.

Thanks for the kind reviews on the knife. Yep I favor the plain mostly. Little flash and mostly bang could be my byline.
