Something different for a hunter in bear country. He asked for a Tanto with a 12 inch blade so this is what I have done to fulfil the commission. 4.3mm 1075 with scandi grind brass bolster and stabilised dark walnut handle. Beach wood scabbard with leather hanger.20220412_131257.jpg

Two for neighbours kitchens.
the General purpose kitchen knife is what my wife uses most and a good friend of hers wanted one. A handle of Dyed Karelian Birch sets it off nicely with the gold flecs of undyed wood highlighting the green. A 5 inch Cryo quenched NitroV Stainles blade.

20220516_133547.jpg

 

 this one in trade with another neighbour has brass bolster, blue G10 liners under the impala jigged buffalo horn handle on the 7 1/2 inch cryo quenched NitroV Chef knife.

Have got a new design done that will cover the small knife/EDC hunter needs  that was mentioned on a hunt forum .
It is the Chamois Hunter with 3 1/2 inch 1084 blade and this prototype has Rosewood handles over orange G10 spacers and brass bolster. I used orange G10 pins in the handle.

with the chamois Hunter, a Bird and trout with camel bone handles on the NitroV ss blade, this makes the second pair for the youth hunt comp.

Western Hunter with yellow cedar burl over CB brass bolster in closed top sheath. The light causes the strange look to the closed top on the sheath but it is the same hot waxed texture as the rest of the leather.20220526_080108 (2).jpg
