A Small Knife

I picked up a small paring knife this spring at a garage sale - they were literally giving away knives, and this was among my two or three pickups.  I drilled out the rivets, used a small antler I had found a few years back in the grass, and re-handled the blade to give it a more eighteenth-century appearance.

To give an idea of size, the blade is just under four inches, and the background is a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" paper.

I like the patina on the blade, so I left it as it is.  Now the next step is a sheath.  Let me know what you think.

Here it is with the sheath - a traditional center-seam.
