This knife was given as a “gift” payment for putting me and my family up for a few days on a Texas Vacation.
Although this one is “Gone”, I can make another that is similar, email me and we can discuss it.

Beautiful Mark as always, the jade really sets it off. Too cool. Man that blade is a masterpiece. Nice stand and antler uprights to hold the knife. Bet it feels good in the hand. mike

Great knife. I hope it goes fast. The turquoise sets it off. Good try Mike.

Beautiful Mark!

Some Deer hunter should give you a premium for this piece of art..

That piece of Turquoise sure looks nice with bone, it greatly enhances the handle.
