Here is the perfect place to share pics of your Hanson masterpieces.
Thanks Mack, the two in the first photo are my best models, I get more comments on those two than all the others combined. I'll have some photos up a little later tonight of some of the new stuff I'm working on.
Beautiful. The one on the far right of the first pic and far left of the second are screaming at me.Here are six Scagel style knives that I still working on, I still have to do the final buffing on them the start the sheath making. I manage to make a couple Santoku chef knives for a change this time around, This batch of knives had quite a bit of experimental thinks going on along with some new materials that I have been working with. There will be more pics with details to follow tomorrow.

Looking forward to it.
I’ve either missed it or never asked but, what Steel(s) do you use? Same for the Santoku?

I love it. I love contrasting colors and those look perfect to me.This next knife is AEB-L heat treated to HRc-62 with cryo treatment. It features a new handle material that I bought from AKS knife supply. It's Black/Cherry Red G10. I didn't like this material at first due to the difficulty polishing the edge grain and due to the fact that it turns out a little more subdues looking. I think the combination of black and cherry G10 in thin layers like this gives it a more of a slight burnt orange tint to it. But this is really starting to grow on me now and I think it has some potential for future builds.
What do you all think about this new G10?

This knife is the same materials as the others but is a field grade version of the boat scraper knife, this is one of my favorite patterns also. It has straight cherry red G10 and black G10 spacers, you will notice the difference in brightness with the straight cherry red G10 vs black/cherry red G10.
