    sumac stagwood with hamon

    Here in Fl. the only sumac, is poison sumac! You don't want to touch the foilage or the tree itself. However I did Google Sumac wood and what I saw had a beautiful grain!! Love the knife by the way the handle is unique and the blade reminds me somewhat of a Puko style!!

    Starting My Next

    I have done it with antler but that is cheap! Well then again what you have to spend hunting nowadays,............. but still cheaper than mastodon bark! EDIT: Actually now that I think about it, it was just boiling water and then pressure!! Don't want to do it in the house as Mama is gonna want to know what that awful smell is??

    Completed Tudor Dagger

    Gary, wow, that seems like a woefully inadequate response but I can't come up with a better response at the moment!!! Holy cow, amazing, awesome, smoking!!!!!!!! Every part of the knife complements the other parts! So that is what a custom knife is suppose to do! Did I say WOW!

    File Trade?

    Caleb, sounds like you hit the lottery so to speak!! Listen not trying to be an a$$ but that piling of files is the worst thing you can do with a file. They are hard enough without much force you can chip the edge of one file with the other. The best way to store them is to hang them, so that they can't smack against one another. In lieu of that I reverse them handle to blade and lay them on my work bench. That eats up a lot of space though. I have got to get busy and make a rack to hang them!
