Those are about the truest to form of the Araluen Ranger Corps knife set as I have yet seen, bladewise!
I think that the cover art on the Australian books (which were changed due to John Flanagan's direct input) Had more of a stacked leather grip with brass furniture. But Hell if I were going to make them for myself as a Ranger that could make knives, that's what I would do with them! :mrgreen:

I seem to vaguely recall the novels actually mentioning stacked leather as the handle material, but Andy still seems to have hit the nail on the head. He said it was a commission for a local SCA member. I responded saying "For an SCA member who most assuredly has read the Rangers Apprentice series dozens of times..."

Davis didn't confirm or deny this, but he did mention later in another comment that he's also been commissioned to craft a combined scabbard for the two of them. Umm...yeah.
Now the sword shall come from under the cloak.
