Just been sitting around waiting on wood and having nothing else to do right now, I worked on a little knife for just to be doing something. I’ve had the blank for a couple of months. Even tho it is a Made in China, it is 440c SS and hand hammered. Has a nice look to it and so I did something a little different with it. The handle is a piece of horn from an African Antelope, I think I was told it was a Gemsbok. The sheath for some reason was a problem and didn’t come out like I wanted. The lacing didn’t go right because of the hair so I’ll probably re-do it. I’ve got some Alligator hide coming in that might look good. I’ll also work on the mirror finish as it isn’t what I want.

Anyhow here it is for comments good or bad. Not a wood project so this will probably be removed and I’ll have to stick it somewhere else.

That’s a pretty nice blade you guy there. Always wanted to do something like that. Maybe one day.

“Just been sitting around waiting on wood”
shouldn’t have to wait too much longer

Very unique is the first thing that comes to mind, the next is that I’m betting it’s ONE of a kind

This IS a nice knife, but why did you post this if you knew it didn’t belong here?

Bob, Sorry I couldn’t figure out where to post it. I just wanted to brag a little. Not all my projects are of wood but I am truly a woodworker and not a knife maker.

Dick, The boxes are probably not a one of a kind as I don’t have the imagination to have thought this up. I must have seen something like it somewhere probably here. I copy a lot of other peoples works and most have some modification or mistake that make the a one-of-a-kind. You must know something about wood coming in that I don’t know. It will be a nice surprise whatever I get. I just heard from Monte and he says he will get my order out this week. I hope he can. My supply of BKP is really low. Take care.

Very cool looking knife. And I wasn’t offended that you posted it here.
