My new Patch Knife

Just showing off my new patch knife, I can shave with it if I have too.
It's a Green River Russel, I made the handle out of thick rawhide, it's glued and riveted.

Awesome knife dude.

I really like the blade shape, very practical for everyday work.

Nice, fffg100grns. Did you treat the rawhide in any particular way? Did you harden it by soaking it in resin or something?

Thanks for the posts, The knife works great, I like the slim handle as it fits where I put it, I did nothing to the Rawhide, it seemed pretty stiff to begin with. The blade makes me happy, it trims patches nicely but I do need to sharpen it after about 25 rounds. It lives in a sheath on the shoulder strap of my possibles bag. It's a Green River, I got a Fox Valley Tanning near by and they sell Green rivers for a good price.

I expect razor blade performance out of it.
