This was a bit different for me. I usually do hunters and EDCs, but I've been branching out recently.I thought y'all might enjoy it.

Blade is my own pattern welded steel, made up of 1075, 1095 and 15n20 alloys. Handle is Bolivian rosewood wrapped in argentium silver, with blued mild steel fittings and coined nickel silver spacers. OAL is just over 10". Let me know what y'all think.




Feel free to check out my website. I just upgraded the site so all of my work is not up there yet, but I only sell my knives through the email list, which you can sign up for there. There are 3 or 4 knives (including this one) that will be sent out for sale in the next few days, so now is a great time to sign up.

I have no use for a knife like that, but that's beautiful work! And I may be inclined to purchase it

X2 Looks amazing! I'm interested in a boot knife. That looks like one like that would work nicely. PM me if you would be interested in making something like that.

Amazing! That's a Sunday-go-to-meetin' knife.

One of the prettiest I have seen.
