Hello,
Just finished the two “Gal Leg” knives and thought you might be interested in seeing them. Made the baseball bat knife sometime back. I,m kinda proud to say have recently moved past the seven hunderd mark on making all wooden folding knives. Most of my knives look like the normal pocket knives you see all the time. All knives are signed and dated for the many collectors who purchase them. The main blade is marked USA and the back blade says KY. As you can see in the pic that this one is # 100 of 2011. A lot of folks want to know if they are carved. I have to say no they are all seperate pieces see poster with all parts. Hope you find this interesting and if you make something like them please contact me to trade secrets. Questions welcome.

These look fantastic, your other knife post had some real beauties aswell.

I was just thinking of making a small wooden knife for my little cousin. He is turnig 6 on Sunday. He loves to camp and fish with his dad.
I didn’t know if it would be inappropriate but i thought if i rounded the blades tip, it would be very safe.

Do you have any tips to share. thanks for posting your parts poster, thats a great help.

Very, very nice work and inspirational as well. What is the material that you are lining the cases with?

Thanks for the plans I’ll have to move this one up on my to-do-list.
