    If you have any pictures of SDS knives in use please post them here. I'd love to see some action shots. I'll post a couple of pictures of knives I've made but unfortunately I don't have any action shots.

    Here is a little pocket blade with bois d'arc (osage orange) handles.

    Here is a bush knife with matching firestarter. Both with lignum vitae handles.

    This was a special order Ford Mustang knife. I was happy with the way it turned out and Great Lakes Waterjet was great to work with on helping with the parts.

    Wow, great looking blades. I really like the orange handled camp knives. The wide blade on that bottom one looks perfect.

    Thanks guys.

    That orange G10 handled camp knife is 3/16" and should handle just about any camp chore. It was made to be handy enough to skin an elk but still large enough to chop through bone and tendons if the user wants to.

    The period bowie was fun to make. It has a walnut handle with brass pins. The sheath is veg. tanned leather wrapped with rawhide with a few period style trinkets.

    have you ever done a scandi grind? judging by the quality of your other grinds, i dont think that youd have a problem doing it.

    I've never tried a scandi grind but I might give it a try. I know a lot of people like that style.

    I've got two and love them very much :) I haven't downloaded the usage pics on the camp knife yet, but I'll post them up when I get them on my computer.

    Here's the camp knife, which is one from above that Shawn already showed a pic of. The knife is great and the sheath is VERY well made.

    These are the only pics I have of the skinner. This is one of my favorite knife/sheath combos that I own. The simple pouch style sheath is perfect for me (no pics I guess I'll have to snap some). The forward jimping on the spine allows for great blade control.

    Here's a bunch of pics.

    Here are two that are going to be prizes at a traditional archery tournament this weekend (if anyone can get there with the weather the way it is).

    First is a small 3/32" 440C blade with orange jigged bone handles. I did a little work to the sheath because the knife by itself looked a bit too much like a paring knife to me.

    The second is a 1/8" D2 blade with bois d'arc handles. The blade has been etched and the handle was heated to give it an aged look. The sheath is rawhide wrapped veg. tanned leather with copper tacks and a few beads and cones.
