• Spring cleaning sale: I've reduced prices on the BladeForums.com Logo Tshirts and PVC patches to move these out of here! We're down to sizes Large & XL on the shirts, but have plenty of every colorway left on the patches. Get them before they are gone! https://www.bladeforums.com/help/bfcmerch/
  • The search engine is not working correctly. We are aware of the problem and are working on a solution. Thank you for your patience.
  • I've implemented new password tools to try and cut down on the number of people getting their profiles compromised by reusing the same passwords that they have used elsewhere. If you are using a password that has been exposed in a data breach and is listed on haveibeenpwned.com you will get a notification to change it the next time you log in. When you choose a new password it will show you the strength; you will need a "Medium" strength or higher password for here, 8 characters or more in length.

    Thanks for your support!

How about we start with Some High Uinta's


The High Uinta:
OAL: 8"
Blade: 3.5"

This is my personal High Uinta, I carry this knife with me every time I head into the back country... It is not this pretty anymore


This is my better Halfs High Uinta, It is still this pretty!

This is a "Hunters Kit" I just finished up today for a friend up in Alaska. I love knives going to AK because I know they will see heavy use.


This is my version of the Sharp Finger, I call it the "SPK - 7.5" Great for processing Big game


This is my Trinity Drop Point designed for Trinity Longbows, This is my EDC and makes a great all around Camping


This is my Bird & Trout


Handles are Grey TeroTuf with G10 Spacers and Liners, Steel is 1/8" CPM154 Stonewashed
Look forward to your comments

haven't had much time to update this thread... Here are a few of my recent builds

will the terotuff hold blood/bacteria like canvas micarta will?
TeroTuf definitely is more porous than G10, I don't think it will "Absorb" moisture but any dirt and debris will cake onto the handle if not cleaned

Just checking out your designs for the first time.. I'm completely blown away by your handles. The wood is finished spectacularly..gorgeous work.
Thanks for checking them out Brian let me know if you have any questions, The handles are one of my favorite steps in making a knife!

I have been playing with Tanto's the last few months... Almost didn't let this one out of the shop


A few diffferent options on the Lorien Design "BRO"


Here is a Large Persian Craine I finished up a few weeks ago


This is a large run of Karambits named the "Utrap" that have been working on for a while now... This is the prototype, will be making a few changes for the run 1. Thin the handles down 2. Beef up the Ring


Here is one of my Trophy Caping knives I finished last week


And probably the most exciting news out of the Ryan W. Knives shop in a while... My first Folder called the "SaddleBack" - Wouldn't have been possible without the help of Eric Ochs!!
