I think this is an interesting treatment to a hunting knife. This one may be destined for son #1, the semi-pro bass fisherman. He mostly works club tournaments but also hit a couple of the Bass Master ones. Hard to believe he has won a boat rig (he sold) and several other neat things and with the cash, he is over $150,000 for the year with 2 tournaments coming up later this month. Not bad for a 50 y/o part time fisherman.
Anyhow, here is a 1089 tool steel knife with a black powder treatment on 1/2 the blade. Handle is a left over piece of Black & White Ebony. I’ll probably redo the sheath. It got some bad spots and the cut outs didn’t work as I planned. Cowhide with lizard in the cut outs. I plan on using more of the Ebony for Handles. It finishes really well.
Guess you are tired of see my knives. I have been on a run with them lately. Now I am doing bookcases for the wife out of BKP, a cedar chest of Pecky Cypress lined with red cedar, another cross for a wedding but this is a Wedding Cross, a Celtic Cross for a friend at church and jewelry box of BKP with huge golden knots all over. Working everyday for 5-6 hours and it has got me feeling good. For once I almost have Christmas finished. Usually it is down to the wire with projects drying the house on Christmas eve because the shop has been to cold to vanish. One more knife, 2 Cutting Boards and the last one of 6 Cheese Slicers and I’ll have a month and a half, plenty of time.
Anniversary coming up in a week and we are going to LA to do some gambling, eating Oyster Po’ Boys and sampling LA’s Bread Pudding. No where have we found better and their Bourbon Sauce is wonderful. We’ll be heading for places like Golden Meadow, New Iberia where the Tabasco factory is, Houma, Breaux Bridge, Rayne, Operlousas and other favorite Cajun spots we love. If we burn the casino for some extra cash, we may stay a couple of weeks. Hell, we could have a Turduken for Thanksgiving.
Here, I’ve rattled off again. Gotta watch that.
