That's very nice - generous and comfy looking handle!
also - congrats on the new subforum!
So here is a small Bushcrafter that I just finished today. I wanted to see how long it would take me to do one from start to finish including Heat Treat. Well, it still needs some detail work done but I was able to do two in a day! This one might be going to a forum member, or it might go up for sale!
Its 8 1/4" OAL with a 3 1/2" blade. Its my small Bushcrafter. It will be getting one of my universal sheaths in the pic above. What do you think?

Man, it's about time one of you guys put something in here to look at, I mean, what gives, you both act like you guys just started a new forum or something and are all busy with the details . . . .
Great looking knife once again Chris, so now we need one of those classy items from southern Ohio to complete the book ends of one from each of you.
Great job & great craftsmanship once again.
p.s.: 1066vik, good to see ya' again . . . .

Pokey here! thanks guys. Ill find out today if its sold. I had this o9ne profiled out already and received a request for one. Its a little smaller than the one he wanted so if he wants one bigger it will be for sale.

Unusual woodgrain...what is it,please?
Agree with the sagacity/wisdom of Bill Akers: another day job headed south!
Gnarly, that is walnut crotch. It is beautiful! Walnut is by far my favorite wood, there is just something classic about it plus, you can get curly, crotch, or burl..
Chris,he is a classic bushy curly crotch man,he"s got wood!
Got any of that Red Mallee Burl in 'crotch'?
Prefer it neat; not so fond of curlyBushy.
Im already lovin this !!
You'd never BELIEVE how natural it feels in the hand.
The young man KFU is onto something there.
I dunno much about ergonomics,but the shape fits the natural shape of the human hand....no grip issues + less fatigue,when using it for a extended period.....absolutely PERFECT for 'user' knifes,IMO.
Big 10-4 HE CAME HANDED ME THE DESIGNS I WAS LIKE WTF? BUT THEN I HELD ONE AND THEY ARE QUITE COMFY,I SET AND GAZED WHILE I WATCHED HIM AT MY GRINDER! I KNEW HE WAS GONNA BE A FAST LEARNER! AND LOOK A COUPLE MONTHS LATER!!
OTOH, the few times I've shaped a set of scales, I tend to put the swell more forward than centered, so I can just imagine.
Will definitely be keeping an eye out.
