    Hey guys. Gotta run out to practice, but I thought I'd post some pics of the Snubnose collaboration batch. All handles are stabalized wood except for the Desert Ironwood.

    Two are Black Ash Burl and one is English Elm Burl.

    I've been waiting to see what you would do with these. Very nice. Congrats to you both.

    If the first ironwood is available, I'd like to have it on my belt.

    Andy, how do these compare to your Snubnose? Are they thinner?

    I was wondering the same, they seem to have slightly longer blades, but if could just be a trick of the eye, I really love that handle shape, so comfortable

    OK guys. The pricing is as follows:

    The stabalized burl handled ones will go for $300 shipped with sheath
    The Ironwood ones will go for $270 shipped with sheath
    The rest (all stabalized - my prized curly quartersawn Red Oak, Lacewood, and Wenge) will go for $280 shipped with sheath

    You got the Wenge one Edgemaster! Thanks!

    You got the Ironwood one then Crewbot.

    They aren't thinner, and the handle and blade measurements are exactly the same lengthwise. Mine has a wider blade. They are very very close to each other.

    Pristine...as I expected.

    If you two were tied up back-to-back & blindfolded, ya'll still couldn't make ugly knives.
