Beautiful work. Handmade knives are so cool. I especially like the handle with the finger slots DVW, they just plain feel good when you grab them and are so comfy when you are using them. That walnut you have is exquisite HM. Looks every bit as good as No. 1 Fancy Grade on an expensive trap gun stock.

Making something special for your Dad that's what matters most. Great knife and family project.

Thanks all. I usually don't make such big knives, but I'm happy with the way they turned out.

This was made for a friend at work. He is giving it to his step-son for his birthday. The blade is 1/8 inch thick D2. The handle is cross-cut Cocobolo. Jeff Hays of Hays Holsters made the sheath for me and I like how he did it.

The guy I purchased the win rifle from today gave me a couple small blocks of claro-walnut. I'll be able to cut them into slabs for handle material. Just waiting on new stock to arrive.

Those will be fun to make into knife handles. I really like your choice of wood so far. Not many knife makers use domestic woods.

I wish I could make the leather for the knives. Hard enough to learn the knife making process.

Here is yet another micarta skinning knife for a friend at work. It is made from 1/8 inch thick D2 with brass bolt style rivets and a .22 magnum shell. The sheath was made by my buddy Jeff Hays.





I've already shown pictures of this knife, but Jeff finished the sheaths for it. He really does some nice work.

That's really nice work by both of you. Congrats. Does your buddy do any other outside work? I'm in need of a few! If he is interested could you send me a PM with his info. Thanks!
After final clean-up I'll get the next knife picture posted this week.
