The Sidewinder

Scott recently completed his first potential journeyman test knife. We're calling it the Sidewinder, and this little hand-rubbed W2 fighter will possibly be judged by seven mastersmiths (along with four other blades) at the ABS All Forged Blade Expo in San Antonio later this month. See what you think.

Steel: W2
Finish: Hand-rubbed with clay hamon
Handle: Curly Koa
Overall Length: 10 3/8 inches
Blade Length: 5 inches

The Sidewinder has a beautiful clay hamon, but they can be difficult to capture in photos.
Here's my best shot.

One down and the clock is ticking.
