I really like the handles I do. But every once in a while I just get a hair up my butt to make something "normal".

And this is a super shiny "normal" woodcraft knife.

koyote, Have you ever considered putting a steel buttcap on one of your bushcrafters?

i've done a coule buttcaps in o1 on through tang knives. Thought about forging some on the full tang knives, too. I'm not sure about the idea of pinning to a full tang knife for hammer work, though.

You don't need a hammer at the butt, but a nutcracker would be nice, just a little metal to tap with.

That handle IS sweet. Theoretically, a slick blade surface might even cut better, although I like your basic style.

Yea koyote that looks cool and just to let you know that knife trading that we did, that Lueko is on my ATV 24/7 as of now right next to my shoulder pack( survival kit ) that I carry with me always when out in the timber.

Take care,

koyote that sounds cool, I have cut up a few thistles and some small locust and ceder trees to. I love that 5" inch blade. Just when I think I we have cut every tree that needs cutting, Kathy and I have put up our chainsaws and clippers and just getting ready to leave there it is one little tree that we ( I mean that kathy has missed ) LOL
Oh I tell her about it to LOL I just reach for the knife you made me and no more little tree that kathy missed LOL It is just to much fun to cut stuff you know what I mean.:D Some times I will use my Pathfinder too. Just depends.

Chat with you later,
Bryan

As soon as Sierra finishes the sheath, I'll be taking the real photos. I may go with the 12,000 year old bison vertebrae for the photo instead of throwing it into the picnic table bench, even so.
