I know you guys have been bored with my stuff but bear with me, here is another one.

I have been making a lot of knives these last few months.
My poor neighbor has been listening to the din of my shed with not a squeak of complain.
So last weekend I decided to make a knife for him.
I decided not to fully grind the edges and some part of the face.
One of my mate said that it looks like a cucumber, so "Cucumber" it is named.

Made of 5160 steel, single bevel grind, and heat treated to between 55 to 60 HRC
Birdseye maple scales, and backyard style EDM etching.

Here it is






And this is before I oil the handle



Thanks for looking..

gelandangan, sweet! I always am amazed at the details that you knife makers have to understand to make a good blade. Nice job.

A great job mate. That looks like it will be a good utility or camp knife.
