A new hunting profile from my bench longer and shallower then I usually do I also moved the plunge cut and leading edge of the bolster right together, no wasted blade here. 99% of my new profile knives or experimental knives are built on the simple side, embellishing a knife with bolster etc is easy enough to do next time. This one is 1095 high carbon and black paper micarta with Nickel silver, brass and copper mosaic pins, a little basic file work, over all pretty simple and tried and true materials.

8 1/4" total length
blade is 4"
1095 high carbon at 5/32 stock thickness
handle is black paper micarta with nickle silver, brass, and copper accents.






I found this set of presentation grade Ironwood scales, looking through the box at Jantz, and had to see them on a knife. You need to see these in real life they look like marble. This is a popular profile I get a lot of interest in with a few slight mod's, the butt of the handle, I carried out the belly and made a sharper sweep into the tip for a more aggressive skinning profile, I very deeply etched the high carbon Damascus


8" total with 3 1/4" blade
High carbon Alabama Damascus @ aprox 3/16" stock thickness
Handle is presentation grade Ironwood with stainless bolster and Nickle silver, brass, and copper Mosaic pins.
