I've been working to get ready for the upcoming Denver Knife Show and the Usual Suspects Gathering, both happening in August, as well as working on commissions.  It's kept me busy.  :)

Here's a mini-parang I'll be taking:

Positioned a little differently in the light:

The steel is my favorite, 5160, that has been triple normalized, triple hardened and triple tempered.  The handle is a curved integral socket wrapped in hemp cord, with three-strand hemp cord Turk's head knots fore and aft.  I tried something new, using West epoxy to impregnate the cord.  I like the results very much and will definitely be using this more. 

The blade is 10 1/4" long, including the choil, and 2 1/2" at its widest.  The spine thickness tapers from approximately 3/16" next to the handle to 1/8" at wide spot..  The overall length is 16 3/8".  It shaves hair nicely.  :)

Here's how it looks in hand...or paw, as the case may be.
