Mine says the same. She sees me looking at knives and says, oh, looking at porn again?
Tknife, here are some more pictures of the finished knife.
The whole package turned out beautifully Shawn :thumbup: Look at that wood! It looks almost too nice to use! I can't wait to get it.
Wow that one a beaut!!
wow.. that's a great looking knife Shawn... i like it a lot.. it looks like a perfect little field/woods knife... nice sheath too....:thumbup: nice all around package...
Thanks. Can't wait to get some feedback when the new owner gets to play with it.
Holy crap! It is gorgeous. Can't wait for the review...
Knives look awesome.
It's here! My curly maple Nessmuk arrived today (the one on the bottom of pg. 1 of this thread). It is simply outstanding. Thank you Shawn, for such a fine tool as my first ever custom. I hope you enjoyed making it as much as I'm going to enjoy using it. :thumbup::thumbup:
I'll try to take some using pics once I replace the camera that my three year old got ahold of.
I'm very glad you are happy with the knife. I hope you enjoy using it and that you enjoy custom knives for a long time to come.
Remember when collecting or buying customs, don't limit yourself to one maker. I think it is fun to see what different makers do with the same design. I have several knives from friends who make knives. They were all given simple instructions (7" bowie blade, sharpened clip, double guard, stag handle) and they each came up with different versions.
Enjoy the knife and if you get the camera working I'd love to see some pictures of it in use.
THAT IS AWSOME ! I also like your Camp knife !
Coaldigger, thanks for the compliment. I get a kick out of making them and love to see others enjoying them.
Here is one I just finished up. I've been working on this one for awhile now as I get a chance.
Alabama damascus blade, mild steel guard (etched with F.C.), water buffalo short rib handle with ebony wood spacer. Deerskin rawhide wrapped veg. tan leather sheath with deerskin fringe.
Thanks for looking,
The damascus grain is excellent... The Rib handle, bolster, guard, blade shape just absolutely perfectly executed:thumbup:
The sheath completes the package! Easily one of the best looking period knives, if not the best I have ever seen:thumbup:
WOW Shawn... that damascus bowie is gorgeous... nice work man..:thumbup: i love the sheath too...
Those knives above remind me of a simplified BRKT Bravo.
Love those rawhide sheaths. What do you use to put the patina on them? Thanks.
Thanks Pizzapaiute. The patina on those sheaths is a combination of different leather dyes applied by hand and then I use different grits of sandpaper and steel wool to give it a worn look.
I really enjoy making those sheaths as it give me more opportunity to be creative vs. making a simple utility sheath.
what would one of these baby's cost, say with orange G10?
