    300 Bucks inspired me to stop being a chicken and put the two large main beam Elk scales I had set aside for a large Vantage onto the knife.
    It was a little frustrating. I think I'll stick to 110's :)
    I like how the Gnarlyness adds grip.
    This one was fun, and interesting.

    Looks nice. I have 1/2 of a large shed in the garage that I keep eyeing for handle swaps on other knives.

    I took apart the small Vantage and eyed it up for about 10 minutes before thinking, Stag or bone on this thing, impossible. :)
    Please keep the bad mouthing to a minimum :) :)

    That's a fantastic looking Vantage. Where did the Damascus blade come from?

    Razor, it was tough, for many reasons. Thanks again for the compliments. I'm going to try and stop clogging The Buck Forum with projects and put them in my Hosted Knifemakers Forum from now on. You can find it in the link in my signature.
    Gunda, the Damascus is from Grand at Snake River Knives Idaho, not far from The Buck Factory. PM me if you'd like his contact info.
