    While I was instructing my wife in knife making I managed to sneak out ahead of her a few times to whittle myself out a knife. It took my wife a lot of time of looking at knives and patterns trying to decide what to make and during that time this little beauty caught my eye. The Old Man made a few of them and after I rolled one around in my hand a bit I decided I had to have one.

    Originally they were called "Pocket Knives" but now the pattern is called "The Packer". You can slip this little beauty in your pocket or any space in your pack and you're set.

    The knife itself is made of 1/8" 1095 with stainless pin and thong hold and a blue stabilized giraffe bone handle. The bone came out of the bargain bin and was a part of my Father's Day present. Initially I wasn't sure what I would do with a single scale of this stuff but after I saw the Packer I knew where to put that bone to use. I have another knife with a giraffe bone handle and it's good and heavy so I hogged out the tang of the knife to lighten it as much as possible. In the end it turned into a nice light little knife that fits nice and easy into my hand. The blade is about 2.5" long and the handle is about 2.4". It's the perfect size for digging around inside some beast to liberate his innards. And the bargain bit of giraffe bone turned out looking pretty darned nice too. Kinda washed-denim looking.

    I'm with Mythtaken. I really like the way the bone turned out.
