I was getting tired of making the same knives over and over so yesterday I sat down and came up with the three on the bottom. The kitchen knife on top is going to a good customer that wanted a kitchen knife like mine, so I squeezed him in between the other three. Left to right on bottom are the model # 116,then 117 and the one on the right is the model # 115 I'm calling it the Buford. It's 9 1/2 OAL with 4 1/2 in blade at cutting edge. I was going to make the Buford a bush craft but the one I use that has a medium high flat ground and works like a champ, not sure who the scandi grind would work for combination camp knife and hunting knife.
The two on the left are hollow ground one with mesquite handles and the other is walnut both are stabilized.

Very nice work. And they look like "working knives," rather than museum pieces, which really appeals to me.

Thanks Mike; I used to make Bowies but found a niche making primarily affordable hunting knives about 10 years ago. They aren't nothing to put on the wall just effective hunting tools that I can make pretty quick that have a lifetime guarantee.
I sure don't have anything about those museum pieces; those gifted artist also have a certain clientele they cater to and lots and lots of talent way out of my league.
