Some really beautiful and skilled work in this gallery, but this one just takes the cake in my opinion. The pairing of materials, blade shape - it's all good!!

I want EVERY SINGLE ONE of your knives. I also maintain that your leather work is fantastic. I've been doing leather stuff for at least a couple years and am no where near your caliber.
If I ever win the Lotto I'm putting every one of the knife makers here on a payroll. Mario is gonna have to move up here. Everyone gets a workshop on my mansion's property. Everyone gets paid well. All equipment/materials are supplied. Once a month everyone pays tribute to me by handing over one of there knives.

Have I not commented on these blades yet?!?!

Stunning!

I like the big curved blade - the one without the bolsters. Looks like a large messy type knife. Beautiful work! Really awesome!

Thanks.  The scales are made of Dymondwood which is laminated, colored wood.  There are probably several brands on the market, but that is the only "trade name" that I am familiar with.

That's just some really stunning work there- all very awesome!  I got a kick out of that one sheath with the horizontal carrier and how you positioned the "A"...kinda follows along with the "crash" theme I'm guessing?

Very nice work there!

What are you asking for the Bowie?  PM me if you'd rather.

The Bowie was made a couple of years ago for a Soldier deploying to Afghanistan.  The handle material was made from some of his old uniforms that he sent along with two shell casings from a previous deployment.  One like it would be int the $225 range.

A little.  He did carry it but one of the first things that is done with shiny blades is that they are spray painted to prevent giving away your position.  He is since home and the spray paint has been removed.

Awesome build! Incorporating memorabilia into the knife is fantastic.
All things considered, $225 for heirloom work like that is dirt cheap, IMHO!

There's just somethin' about stag grips. That looks pretty good.

The one with the up swept blade reminds me of the old Scimitars from the movies- always thought they were cool!  Very nice work, and I like seeing your variety in the Crashcarta!!
