    Just finished this set for a customer in Alberta. 10" hunter and an 8" skinner both with double dyed box elder burl handles, brass bolsters, stainless lanyard tube and made from 1095/15N20 Damascus with piggy back sheath.

    Wow I need to invest in a camera the IPad just doesn't do it justice...lol!!!

    Very nice Steve. You are a knifemaking machine. I want to do a piggy back but not sure when. I do have some knives I'm working on for the show in January. Maby I'll make a pair match if it looks right with what I have started.

    I really like that box elder burl. Nice file work there also. Well done Steve.

    Thanks Kevin, yes you bet that veg tan leather still got another 20sqft of 8oz to go through and I wish I was going home for Xmas but not this year. However it is possible that I may be moving back in the near future have to see how that pans out. ;)

    Steve Why might you be moving back? Except for the generating station there is not much work in the choke right now is there? Is that where you're trying to get in? I guess this really isn't the place for this discussion but good luck anyway.
