I need to locate some buckeye burl as my small supply has been used up on three of the knives.
They are all amazing but the one in the upper right hand corner is stunning.

Do you have an online site for your knives?

no on-line site. I haven't really sold many knives. As stated prior, most have been given as gifts to friends and family. I have sold on e-bay but very limited. I hope in two years that retirement will allow me to do a few more/year and also get a logo to add to the blades. I think "Hunting Man Knives" sounds about right If a request is made I can work something out. All the blades used are Made in the USA as they should be. Most blades are D2 steel which is a good all around blade steel as it holds a good edge and can be sharpened by most users. Occasionally I use A8 steel also a great blade steel. I appreciate the nice comments by all and I am learning as I go.

I hope you are not tired of the pictures......... so here is the walnut knife in the sheath. I have to decide if this one will go on the auction block?? I really like working with high end walnut and I was lucky to locate some in Canada.

Here is a batch of buckeye burl just out of the microwave. I have found that putting Tru-oil in a plastic bag and heating the wood infuses it with the oil and making it more water proof.
