    Another one I started working on, I have this and the other hunter on the go right now. I decided to get some better heat treat equipment so I'm just bringing these as far as can for now until that stuff arrives.. but I dont know when that will be because I havnt mustered up the nuts to order it yet! haha

    So far I've jut been drawing the blanks out on the stock

    I need to work on plunges big time.. I like the gradual looking ones a lot better than these straight in ones

    Most excellent. Love the one piece bolster idea, with the antler. Both cool. Those plunges look good don't worry. The blade profile and bevel is bad ass and draws your eye

    Looks really good. I bet that has some heft in the hand too. I would love to have a mill. I probably wouldn't use it tons, but it sure would be nice at times.

    Thanks fellas! I'm excited to finish this one. It is pretty heavy in the ass end.. it definatly wont balance on my finger haha yep It is 3/16 Steve

    Rob, all those dots concern me a bit. No I've never been in jail or in a gang lol This is a logo for a band I was in in high school, we were 3 best friends and one of them passed away a few years ago. Oh, and here http://markjeffreytattooer.com/home.html I hope we can still be friends. ;)

    I see now where the artistic qualities come from. As an ink fan myself I must say some of that portrait work is very impressive. I have always wanted to have a sleeve done but work and life just haven't made it possible yet.
