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.
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.
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.
