    Greetings All:

    I haven't made one of these in awhile so I thought I'd post. 9 1/4" OAL, 5 1/4" BL, .250" ricasso. All comments welcome.

    V/R,

    Nice job, did you do the Mosaic pin yourself?

    Thanks - nope, I buy the pins rather than make them.

    What? Cutting corners? Next you’ll tell us you don’t harvest all your own stag.

    Those that own my knives know that I don't cut corners. I can't think of anything more unappealing or expensive than making mosaic pins for the two or three knives a year a client asks for them. I regularly go to the Indian subcontinent, southern China, and Southeast Asia to harvest my stag scales. I've had to fight my way out across the borders on more than one occasion, leaving a path of death and destruction.

    I wasn’t trying to impugn your work, just an apparently off target light hearted remark.

    I can’t get through the border with an apple and a SAK these days, I’d hate to have to fill out the forms on antlers.

    Thanks bud - you're the best :) I bought a set of leather radius punches and really like them - I never could cut a clean semicircle

    I think your work is impeccable. I have enjoyed seeing and studying all of your knives. Someday (decades at my rate of growth), maybe my skills will get close enough to your skill level. Thanks for showing.
