The knives are made from an old sawmills bandsaw blade. The handles are leopard wood, maple, and walnut. The sheath is a mix of leather and walnut. The “buck” on the maple handle is inked on and waxed over to seal. The clock is just a piece of scrap spalted maple that I had and cleaned up. It measures 14 X 8 X 1 1/4”. None of these were big projects but they all were enjoyable to make. I have all the respect in the world for anyone who has “positioned” clock numbers on a project. LOL. Thanks for all the looks and comments.

Great work sir. Good job on the Buck head.

I have done clocks. Didn’t like it.

these projects show what a gifted artist you are, The wood, leather sheath is a great idea. I have friends who makes knives from my old bandsaw blades, I’ll pass your sheath design to them.

Fine job on the clock. Setting the numbers? ha ha ha I agree, they never seem to look right. The knives are super cool. Always wanted to try my luck at these.

Wow, at first glance I thought I was looking at a wild, stormy desert scene! Keep that clock!

I like that clock and the knifes are very nice also especially the one with the sheath .
Yes doing the numbers on a clock can be a PITA but a square and compass can help a lot but in the end a good eye is the final judge .
Enjoyable projects and thanks for the show I enjoyed it !
