    Really great looking stuff, FES! They seem to really right in the woods and field. I like the top one a bit more, the bladeshape and especially the handle material look great. The mosaic-pin on the botton knife is a real eyecatcher, for sure.

    Congratz to that both :)

    Kind regards

    Nicely ground and most everyone likes 1095; those should get the job done!
