    I've got an order for Derrick in here, some orders and a couple for Blade Show.

    Yes. I hand rubbed some knives for this batch. This is a Hunter thats been hand rubbed satin-ey, and has a fileworked spine.

    These two knives (Bushie and Bushboot) are for Txbasstech. They are Mesquite over Texas Ebony. The Bushboot is hand rubbed.

    The Recluses are coming right along.

    And check out the Arete!! One for Tony and the first convex one, may be Tals, but the handle is only .91" wide. He may want the next one.

    Cocobolo. Drool. I bought 6 board feet of this when I saw the color. The pins are G-10 (jade), and so is the bullseye filler.

    I made three Bushies too. I'm really loving that black on brown combo. The green linen is for a newly achieved Eagle Scout present (hand rubbed flats with a convex sabregrind). The other, Shadetree burlap with natural canvas liner, pins and bullseye filler.

    [​IMG]

    Pretty Nessie wearing Cocobolo (again, drool quality stuff) for an order (with a blank, can't wait to see what the customer comes up with!). The pins are white fiberglass rod, like what holds the flags on the golf course.

    FOD at Shadetree is a genious. This is green dyed burlap is breathtaking. NEATO! The pins and bullseye filler are nat can micarta.

    I made 4 Woodsmen this week. Some of these are off to Derrick. Black and brown again. Osage with black liners, pins and bullseye filler. EXTRA THICK BLADE 0.211" with beautiful Denim micarta from Shadetree again. Goin to the show. Cocobolo over black can mic.

    And a large Nessie wearing Ironwood that is, spectacular.

    [​IMG]

    You could easily die in a tough survival situation completely due to being hypnotized by the brilliance of this piece of wood. Praise God~! Knife is for an order.

    The Recluse is some kinda uber user centered knife. I love mine. Halfserrated got to see these three.

    All of them were amazing of course. The Recluse is a very well balanced knife and the handle feels like butter, but Andy did make it, so that is expected. For a first shot at a hand rubbed satin, I couldn't tell you hadn't been doing that for years. Really looking forward to Blade:thumbup:

    And yes, that Ironwood is sick.

    Looks like a winner Andy! :thumbup:

    Ship it to me, TF said he doesn't need the knife to make the sheath. The addy is on the paypal.

    I will let you know when the beauty arrives. I am going camping tomorrow thru Monday, I wish I had it with me for that. But Marcelo got 1 of your Terasaurs, so I will just have to play with that:D

    Andy, if that Large Nessy wearing ironwood is mine, I am in awe. If it is that beautiful on the screen, then I can only imagine how it will be in person.
