Default 1975 smith and wesson

I 've had this knife for a very long time ,when I got it there was no guard handle or pummel ! I recently fitted it with guard and used round 1/4 inch leather plugs and plastic wafers from my old wheelchair and bought a pummel ! Its not finished but coming along nicely as I have never indulged in knife repair!Its a 1975 S&W Model #8225 I would like to find a original sheath for it !

Pommel, not "pummel." Sometimes called a butt cap.

That looks good to me. I've shown a few original and rare knives (knifes) here and had critics say they looked like a kitchen knife or a copy of what they had seen in a magazine.
That project looks like you started off with a good blade to begin with and have done purty work.

but does take & hold an edge...is it sturdy enough to be a good working knife and isn't fragile/brittle? On using knives, like using guns... pretty is nice, but only if they are reliable & well made.

Good work Larry! The easy way to make a sheath is to glue the layers of leather together then take it to a shoe repair shop. The cobbler can stitch the outside edge on his big sewing machine in a few minutes. I have used flat pieces of leather for the back and front with spacers to hold them apart at the edges. The main spacer is first cut the same as the front piece then most of its center removed. making the back piece too tall then folding it over on itself makes a good belt loop. Snaps are available in camping supplies. I like a retaining strap with one end sewn in with the spacers. Its loose end folds down over the guard. Obviously you have to rivet the snap onto the front piece before the assembly is glued together. You can buy a sheath inexpensively from Smoky Mountain Knife Works but a home made sheath goes with a project knife.
