Gotta get 9 knives done for Christmas presents to grandkids and grandson-in-law and a friend, all of them serious deer hunters. Knives are good 440 C stainless steel, tempered to 58 Rockwell and razor sharp. Sheaths are being worked on but will be similar to one in photo. They all have to be different like the knife handles and filework
Handles are Deer Antler, Cholla Cactus, Manzanita Burl, Walnut, and African Antelope horn (maybe Ibex). Working now on knives with handles of B & W Ebony, Tulipwood, Marblewood, Granidillo, Spalted Hackberry, and Cocobolo. Those that turn out good get sheaths made. Others have handles removed and another try made. The Ebony handle is nearly finished and looking really good.
File work will be done on all knives this week similar to one shown.
