Buck Trout and Bird Knife

I've had a Buck folding fishing knife lying around unused for a few years. The blade was corroded so I turned it into a small fixed blade. The blade was reduced from about 6 inches to 4, reshaped and reground. The handle is figured Tasmanian Blackwood with brass hilt and lanyard hole.The sheath is cowhide stitched with whipping twine.

Overall length is 7 3/8", blade length is 4".

    What a beautiful knife! Do you happen to have any step-by-step photos of how you made this? Really nice look to it from the photos and nice blade dimensions as well.

    Thanks! Sorry but I don't have step by step photos. I made it some time ago and wasn't thinking of an Instructable at the time.
