Greetings All,

I just finished this Loveless style New York Special in CPM-154/mother of pearl. I had to downsize the knife pattern a bit to fit the scales - first knife I've made with this handle material - first time using miniature corby bolts. All comments welcome. 6 3/4" OAL - 3" BL - .190" ricasso

V/R,

TK

Beautiful knife! Though, I wonder what General George S. Patton would think of it... ;):p

Just shy of $200 John - not bad considering I'm working on a Big Bear with fossilized walrus ivory scales that cost me $600!! No room for error in either of them for sure.
