    Hey guys i just wanted to show you some of my work. I am new to the knife thing and have not made all thaat many knives yet, less than 10 i think. Just throwing these out there because i know knife guys like pictures and i wouldnt mind some opinions on them. These are some of my first creations.

    This one is etched 1085 with whitetail antler and walnut, with red and white fibre spacers. The guard is also walnut and though i know thats not durable this was just a wall hanger and not planned to be a user. The guard also was not finished being shaped in this picture and has been contoured now. I was going for an old rugged look like it may have been on an old mountain mans belt in the past.


    This one is polished 1084 and is a skinning knife i made off an leftover i had from cutting out another project. The handle is red and black dyed and stabilized box elder burl with one stainless pin and a stainless lanyard tube. The back point of the blade will be rounded not pointy on the next model as this snagged a couple times while skinning two moose. The scales on this have also been rounded some at the front edge to give a better look and feel.


    I know they arent perfect but its a start. Sorry for the poor pic quality, they are off my phone.

    knives look great Grayzer, the walnut guard on your mountain man skinner is a great idea for a used look wall hanger !!
