I made groomsman knives when I got married last September. This was the one for the best man. Knife is a 8 3/4” drop point skinner made from O1 tool steel, with the handle being a nicely figured amboyna burl from southeast Asia. Mosaic pins complement the swirls.

That’s some nice looking wood.

When you said “groomsman” I thought it was a knife that would be used by people who groom horses, for what I don’t know ;)

Nice looking. Means more than something bought.

Very nice. And a meaningful gift. I assume you built the Mosaic pins yourself. Nice design with those too.

Thanks guys…I had a lot of time in these. I had 9 groomsmen and I made one for myself, and one for my step-dad and father in law. Boy was I sure glad they were done by the time of the wedding! I also made some sheaths, which I branded with a design that I had my brother CNC for me.
