Seeing as I have a few knives to show on a semi regular basis I though I would just paste them in the one thread. This is the first pair. Big Game Hunters in4 3/4 in x .156   blades of 1095.

I had a tag end of 1075 so decided to make a pattern for a camp knife/butcher knife. I had made myself one a long time back with a 8 1/2 inch blade for dicing meat etc when breaking down an animal but

The knives the sheaths were hot waaxed this morning for. Pig sticker with fiddle back eucalyptus, Hunter Skinner and Light Hunter with Accacia in the first pic and a pair of Field scalpels with Buffal

Are those from J&R, Garry?  I really need to ride my scooter down to see him sometime.  If for no other reason but to drool all over his wood.

That's who I meant, Garry.  J&R is the name of his Custom Processing company in Rochelle, TX...........his primary source of income.

The yes I get them from J&R :rolleyes:. Hadn't dealt with his busness, always on a personal level with Jason himself and a better, more honourable man to deal with would be hard to find.

I've spent time with him on the phone.  From that short encounter I can say I most likely agree.

I do like your style, Garry.  It's obvious you are a long-time professional knife user, so that while the wood may be fancy, there's nothing unnecessary or without purpose about any of your knives.

I like that Buckeye, Garry.  Saw a nice handle recently with Buckeye Burl that was a knockout!!!!!

It is rapidly becoming my favourite wood for handles

This one I will deliver on fri when I am in the city Gidgee and brass (with 3 copper pins) on the Nitro V stainless blade and in the first group of stainless blades that I have given a cryo quench.IMG_20201021_165149.jpg

I like the copper pins mirroring your touch mark.  They should look great as patina makes them stand out from the brass.

Thankls Brian. They are barely visible after the high polish so it takes a few weeks till they start to show themeslves more clearly. I have taken to doing that on all the larger bolsters now. Another thing I will do on some of the larger knives is to do the mark on the blades as a drill through rather than a partial drill mark, radius slightly, peen the pins in place and have them visible on both sides of the blade.

Had to make a decision on the Chinese vegetable knife after the handle shaping started to come together and wasn't pleased either the weight or the feel in hand so have put it aside and will take the handle off, regrind the blade with higher grind to remove more weight and use a different bolster and wood combination. In the meantime I ground the other blade and have it in the clamps to finish tomorrow. Also got a Wapiti knife with handles on for tomorrow as well.

The slicer came up rather nice with its Tasmanian Blackwood and bronze furniture
