    The other day someone was joking around, maybe half joking, that they wanted a 43 Beaver Tail in smooth bone. In fact, he said it was his grail knife. Even though it doesn't make total sense, this is a hobby that allows for a great deal of creative, custom freedoms with our knives. Well, I can't leave well enough alone so I thought it would be fun to see what that would look like.

    Then I thought it might be cool to play around with other knives.
    Anyway, it occurred to me that I could probably cobble together any mish-mash of a knife to get ideas for customs, new materials, shields, etc. If you had anything on your mind throw it out there and I'll see what I can do.

    Likewise, if you have anything like this you've already done or want to share please do :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Just popped in my head:
    A BM Adamas blade in polished stainless & a Buck 112 handle. Sized between the two. Of course it's back locked!

    I was thinking a little more traditional :) No thumb stud anything allowed on The Porch :thumbsup: I guess I could just leave that part out.

    Thank you :) That was fun. I wasn't sure if I was going to even attempt it but it just so happens someone posted a pic of one of Lyle Fry's knives in a FB group and it has checkered ivory handles :)
