Cocobolo and Maple Field Knife

The bolster of the original handle broke soon after assembly, and I wasn’t happy with the repair job I did, so I destroyed the old handle and replaced it, this time in cocobolo with a curly maple bolster, using the ricasso for a finger choil. The blade was forged from 5160, with forge scale left on. I’m considering removing it but leaving the texture.
