Scalping knife
 
A friend of mine is a reenactor and wanted this knife, he described it as a scalping knife. The steel is 1095, heat-treated using clay. The overall length is 10" and the blade length around 5 1/2". The handle is covered with aged and abused leather. He wanted the knife to look old and used. In the final picture you can see the lovely rainbow effect I got when treating the blade with salt to age it a bit.
