    The matched pair of slip joints called "In a Winter's Garden" is finally finished. Between the new job, the fall chores , running the kids around and just general laziness, these took a lot longer than I had anticipated.
    The knives have all the same material, 154 CPM blade and back spring, 416 stainless bodies, and mammoth tooth bias cut inlays. I once again have to thank Rick Genovese for his willingness to share his inlay process and patience with my stream of questions.
    The knives are 3 5/16ths inches long closed and 5 13/16th inches open. They are flush in all three positions.
    These were designed as a matched pair in that one of them is thinner lighter and has what I would term as an easy pull, the other is slightly thicker both in blade and body and has a medium/light pull.
    Mr Charles Turnage supplied the mammoth tooth which was as usual perfect for the project.
    These will be sold as a matched pair.
    Thank you very much for taking the time to read my ramblings and for taking a look at my knives.
    Your comments are always appreciated.
