This set away in the morning. I am increasingly favouring the K-tip design chef knife with its depth of blade further out toward the tip.
An 8 inch K-tip, a 5 inch general purpose and a His n Her steak knife set in the travel case all in cryo quenched NitroV with ss pins in the Camel bone handles.

This pair of knives is away to day and or one in particular it has been an interesting chalenge with new materials and techniques. The conversation started a while back asking if I had worked with bog oak and mamoth tusk so after some decisions on various aspects of the knife the oak and tusk were purchased only toi find the tusk was really quite thin segments and not the size that would make the suitable for stand alone bolsters so they were shipped off to me with the decision beling left untill they arrived to see how they might best be used. When they arrived and after a bit of thought it was agreed that I would mill down the front of the bog oak to be its own liner under the mamoth tuskand because the tusk was thinner on one side I angled the milling to retain as much of the tusk as possible when shaping began.
This was to be for a Heavy hunter, so after making sure the handle would fit the tang I went ahead with the milling and epoxied them together. You can see the slight angle under the tusk and even if it looks otherwise they are both even as will show better in later pics.

Becauser the blade was to be stone washed I decided to pre fit them so after the stone washing and final fitting there would be no interuption in the stone washed effect as is usual when fitting the handles afterwards.

I radiused all the edges round both the scales (apart from the front of the bolster of course) and the knife tang then gave the blade a good acetone wash, etched it and gave it a 6 hour coffee soak before a gentle hot water wash, an oil and sat it for 48 hrs to set. Then the stone washing left it with a very nice and dark finish so again it was acetone washed and the handles epoxied and pinned on. WQhen it was being pre fitted I would tap the pins through to protrude on the opposite side so I could shape the one side the reverse it for the other which left me with long pins but after the epoxy dried I cut them off with side cutters and carefully filed them down to the surface gently sanded again and re buffed the surface. Have been really pleased with how they finished up. The sheath is a left hasnd behind the back cross draw and with a second knife to go as well, a Chamois Hunter in plain furniture was made using a block of black locut and it also sits in a left hand sheath.

The new pattern Byrd Camp Knife with 7 1/2 in 1084 carbon steel with this first of the series being engraved for my agent who it is named for.
The description from my website
The Byrd camp knife is the ideal knife for all foods from meat through to vegetables in those situations where a rugged all purpose knife is needed whether it is at camp or for the family barbeque. This one has Buffalo horn scales over blaze orange liners fixed with corby bolts to the 7 1/2 inch 1084 carbon steel blade.

First three Lion knife handled general purpose kitchen knives for a friends shop in the victorian Precinct in Oamaru. Had a bit of a glitch with the etching (size wise) on the two top stainlessknives and the engraving on the carbon steel blade. Should have been an "N" on the end of Victoria and all future blades will be have the etching and engraving the same size as the smaller option but they will serve as they are for the first delivery.
top knife is "spilled Milk" acrylic over micarta on NitroV stainless blade
middle knife is Resin Ivory over micarta on the NitroV stainless blade
Lower knife is English Oak on 1095 Carbon steel blade.

I like that resin ivory. Is that the regular or the super?

It is the R grade as compared to the S grade.

Knife # 900
I have a few days hunting organised for this month so decided it was time to retire my old standby Light hunter with the end grain olivewood handles so I made myself this Tahr Hunter with scolloped OD canvas micarta handle over blaze liners with lanyard tube on the 1075 blade with jimping.
