    Mine says the same. She sees me looking at knives and says, oh, looking at porn again? :D

    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.

    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,

    :eek:Wow Shawn!!

    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:

    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.
