Quench-Finish Harpoon Survival Knife in 1084

This knife was a collaborative effort with my 17yo cousin, who picked the pattern and assisted in profiling and heat-treating over the holidays, for his 18th birthday present. 5.125″ harpoon blade, as-quenched, fully hardened halfway down the tang, then differentially tempered for a super-tough blade, with an edge at ~60HRc. Bolster is brass from the E/V Nautilus original rudder bearing assembly, replaced in 2013.

camp knife in A2 and bushcraft sheath

The first of the big 5″ outdoors knives.
I call this one the “Misty Mountain 5″, but this is not a catalog item… Gotta log the pix somewhere to keep track of ’em, so here they are:
5″x1.5″ blade, 5/32” A2, natural/brownish canvas micarta, kydex and leather ambidextrous bushcraft drop-loop sheath.

(pix were before edge, but it’s sharp now, lemme tell ya)
