Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

i've been off for quite a while due to some issues but now i'm trying to make it back slowly :)

 

so i always liked J RUSSELL GREEN RIVER blades and the hunter blade most.i wanted to make one for a long time and i finaly did it from an old bearing(as usual :D )

Simple and elegant design. Looks like it would sit really nicely in one's hand.

That sheath is wicked cool, too. Did you forge the hardware for it?

I really like this knife and sheath alot! To me, it's perfect but n terms of what a knife can be in this style. I, too, would be interested in if you did the hardware on the sheath, as the ring is thoughtfully rustic but with the the extra step of looping around the ends and the end tucked, nice detail.
