Looove your work. Would love to make my own stacked leather knife. Do you know of a kit similar to the above knife that a newb could acquire? I'd try doing from scratch but have no way of making the pommel/screw thing-a-ma-bobber...

I don't know of any kits to make this style. I guess you could press it all together and peen the tang as it comes through the cap?

something new to look at

Moose antler kind of reminds me of ivory. Damascus is USA made 416 layer. Stainless steel guard and spacers

Wow. I think you're ready for Forged in Fire. Too bad Photobucket ruined your earlier pics. Glad you had a link to FB.

Thanks, I got a few emails from them months ago. I'm not into drama so I really don't want to do the show. Heck, I'd rather do a show where someone would show me how to do things. I've got lots to learn.

CPM154 stainless steel hardened and Cryo'd to 60HRC. Stacked leather with brass guard and end cap. 10 3/8 OAL with a 5 inch blade. I like the way this blade is shaped. Wish I could get lucky and make another lol

That divot tool looks like it could serve double duty in the field as the world's fanciest ferro-rod scraper, too. :thumbsup:      Beautiful work.....on both counts! :hail:

That is the best looking divot tool I have ever seen.  I would go around chopping up chunks of sod just to use it a lot.  Nice stuff, as usual.  Thanks.

Wow!  Gorgeous!

I really like the lanyard bead.  I have begun making custom firesteel handles.  So I really appreciate the craftsmanship it takes to make something like that bead.

here's a tactical type knife I cobbled together. Not my style but I did the best I could. Damascus and G10 combo is purely a sin. After I make a kydex sheath, I may not recover
changed the screws out for titanium, looks better

Totally agree with your assessment!  Not my style, either, but as usual, your workmanship is outstanding.

Been kind of a tough last six months. Medical problems and the big "C" in the family. But for all the knives I didn't get done here's a few I did manage to get done.

Cool little skinning knife I finished last week. The steel is 416 layer ADS damascus with a hollow grind. The bolsters are 440c stainless steel dovetailed to stabilized mammoth. Red liners and mosaic pins. Bead is the same. The OAL is 8 7/8 and the blade is 4 3/8.

And here's the sheath for this knife. Cow leather with deerskin lining and the inlay is water snake
