I just completed these three hunter/utility blades.
Specs, in order, are as follows:
This hunter is handled with Hawaiian Kiawe, which is Arizona Mesquite that was transplanted to Hawaii in the late 1800s. It has slightly different characteristics than mesquite due to the wetter climate, but is basically the same. I started this blade over a year ago, moved to Canada for about 12 months, and just finished it last week. The guard is soldered, which I won't be doing again. The chattoyance is killer, and there's some nice curl on the front part of the handle which doesn't really show up in the pics. This knife is still for sale, and I'll post it in the for sale forum sometime in the next day or so. In the meantime, it can be found on my website (link in my signature line).
OAL: 9 3/8 inches
Blade: 4 1/2 inches
Handle: Hawaiian Kiawe
Guard: Brass, Black G10
The next one is a popular model of mine, this time in green Micarta and 440C. This knife has already sold.
Green Micarta No.9
OAL: 8.9 inches
Blade: 4.25 inches
Handle: Green Canvas Micarta
And finally, one of the first blades I've forged in a very long time. I just joined the American Bladesmith Society, and this is the first of MANY forged blades in preparation for my Journeyman testing a few years from now. This knife has also already sold.
