I am moving to the country the first week of August, and am scheduled to be at the International Custom Cutlery Expo in mid September. Since I have to tear my shop down for the move, I decided to go ahead and get all my show knives done before the tear-down, so as not to be in a bind rushing to get the shop back together and knives built before the show. Here are two that I finished this weekend. One is my Spicewood Special model, a knife I've built dozens of, named after the Spicewood, TX community where my great-grandparents ranched and where I've deer hunted my whole life. The blade is 3/32 CPM154CM with nickel silver bolsters and jigged bone. OAL is 7 3/4. This one is thin at 3/8" at the thickest point. The other is a one-off large hunter, 9" OAL. The steel is W2, heat treated with clay for a hamon. The bolsters are mesquite, and the handle is Texas ebony. I figure if I'm going to Kansas, I'd better represent Texas.
