    The first ones is Ladder pattern Damasteel with Amber jigged bone. The 2nd one is miniature made from Ladder pattern stainless damascus from Devin Thomas and Mammoth Ivory. The 3rd one is A Bowie with CPM-3V & Maroon Linen Micarta. The 4th one is an EDC made from Damasteel and Desert Ironwood burl. The last one is a hidden tang with a hand rubbed CPM-S35VN blade, Brass fittings, Red Linen Micarta spacers, & Axis Stag handle.

    First one is my take on the old Sharpfinger pattern. I added about 1/2" to both the blade & handle. The steel is AEB-L and the handle is Desert Ironwood. The 2nd one is an A2 Bowie with mild steel fittings & Osage Orange handle. The 3rd pic is a set of Sharpfingers I made for WD Torque. The last one was also made for WD Torque and has a hand rubbed CPM-S35VN blade with a 416 SS guard & a Desert Ironwood handle. Its a copy of Jerry Fisk's Sendero and I wanna thank Mr. Fisk for graciously giving me the blessing to copy this awesome pattern.

    LOVE that Sendero, Darrin. You're right, Mr. Fisk's lines have truly become iconic. Have to admit, thought, I'm intrigued by that trailing point in 10V of Ankerson's...

    440C, Stag, & 416 SS fittings with a coined Bronze spacer & domed pins. 400X hand rubbed blade & mortised handle construction. Blade is 6 1/8" long, 1.5" wide. & 5/32" thick at the Ricasso with a nice taper. Overall length is 10 3/4". Balances right at the guard/spacer junction and is quick and lively in the hand.
