NEw creations

Been a while since I posted here but am finally o the go again
Have some new creations

Copied the design of the caping knife from a knifes of Alaska set and made up a nice drop point knife from pieces of 440 steel
Both are set in antler from an Elk shed that has been restained to a light honey colour and offset with brass guards

I've been building knives lately myself. I'm in various stages of building 5 of them. When I get a couple done I'll post some picture too.

Very nice looking, hand made anything makes a person proud. I have a D2 blade and some ebony handles started, I have been off all winter but did not get to that project yet, this is a nice reminder.

Thanks
Like I said I copied the designs of the caping knife from a buddies knives of Alaska one and the other on came from a knife I have had for years.

The bigger one is made from a planer blade I have had kicking around for 30 years and I bought a piece of 440 steel for the caper
