thanks, It takes me a lot of time to make this type of knife. What seems to take the most time is picking the right handles that go with the blades. I have to sit and think about it for a while

Obviously, you're thought process is always spot on.

finished a Caping knife with Mesquite burl, really cool wood. The bottom knife has Box Elder. Both made on the 14 inch wheel. Haven't decided if I like the hollow grind or the flat grind better

Wow!  That wood is extraordinarily beautiful.  The designs are, as all yours are, superb.  Great stuff and thanks for posting.

You are getting seriously good Dan!  Those look really really nice.  I like your makers mark too!  Simple but elegant.  Have you messed around with a user in the s35vn steel?  I've never tried it myself but it's getting awfully tempting to try.  I hear good things on it.

Dayum.  Those are all something special.  That Moose antler is exceptional as is the blue handled one.  Thanks for posting.

I like the S35vn steel. I have used this steel a few times and I've got a few more blanks to finish. These were hardened to 60 and so far are wicked sharp. If I don't sell them all I'm going to take one on my elk hunt this year. That should be a good test

That stag handled knife is superb.  Great blade shape and nice work leaving the file origins visible.

.....what Stan said^   Another thing I appreciate is leaving just vestiges of the original file teeth present on the spine to indicate its origins.  While I like the appearance of the knives or rasps with the whole side of the knives covered with teeth, they look like they'd be more of a job to clean and create a hindrance when cutting meat, cheese or anything else that they'd have a tendency to stick in......but what do I know? :shrug:

just finished these two. One is elk and the other is stacked leather. For me they were a couple days worth of headaches trying to get them to fit.

Those are both great, but I agree with OE on the stacked leather one, I really like it!!  Outstanding work Dan!!

Just out of curiosity, is the Elk sealed with something, or does it just polish that well?   It really seems to have a sheen to it.

Amazing.  You are able to raise the bar every time.  That burlwood in the second knife is as good as it gets.

Well the time spent picking the material pays off. Your style is a good blend of usable art, with enough color and shine to show off without being too flashy.
