Rib Knife
« on: December 23, 2017, 12:47:25 PM »
Couldn't think of a name - the handle is a very, very, very old rib bone so....... Steel is 1095, blade length is 3", overall length is 7.9", price $250 plus shipping.

Great looking knife Dave!

I really like all of the work on the handle.

HOLY COW!  :shocked:    That baby is for sure an eye-catcher if I've ever seen one! :hail:

When you say that rib bone is "very, very, very old," do mean fossilized-old? :shrug:

Not fossilized, but collected long before it would be considered illegal to do so.

Seems like I've commented  before about liking the blade shape on another knife you made. Looks a lil familiar and I do like it. Also it's nice to see someone make something other than full tang/slab sides blade. Cool stuff.

Still is a cattle state.  This bone did not come from that genre.
