    Well, some folks on here said they didn't get tired of seeing these coffin handled daggers, so here's another:).

    This one has an 11 3/8" blade and 16 1/4" OAL. It has a five piece spacer and green fossilized walrus ivory.

    Hope you like it.

    Well,I won't get tired of looking at these Coffin-handles, or that Dogbone either.

    That Green Walrus is something to get stoked about, too.

    Good go, again, Mike

    Mike,

    That is one beautiful knife. Everything about it is just awesome, but our ladder damascus puts it over the top. I think you do the best ladder in the business. Congrats on another stunner.

    -Mike

    P.S. I drove right through your neck of the woods a couple of weekends ago. The cops shot a guy just above Downieville and Hwy49 was closed. Had to go home the long way via Hwy70.
