    Been thinking about using this material for a handle for a long time. Never seen anyone else use this on a knife.

    It's the top side of the skull of a Sambar Deer. You can see the cranial sutures.

    Really 'chunky'

    As backspacer, I used Sambar Stag from the same deer.

    Framelock. It would just be too 'thick' if I'd use the skull on both sides.

    I made a black leather sheat for it with a pattern of the cranial sutures.


    Really hope you guys like it.

    You really need to start putting your knives up on Instagram. I believe they will sell better there.
