    Hello everyone,

    I've been away from knifemaking for about 15 years, but I'm resuming part-time. I may have a couple of questions for you guys further down the road.

    Hello every one,

    I make mostly hunting knives, but also a couple of wilder pieces when the material dictates the function. I don't know if there is a minimum number of posts before one can post pictures, but I've just finished a letter opener in damasteel, with a walrus ivory and amboyna burl handle. I'll try and upload it to Photobucket, which might wirk better for posting it here.

    More like 3 years experience and about 5 dozen knives or so, followed by a 15-year hiatus.

    sorry, i misread... i thought it said you've been knifemaking for 15 years... but you've been away from it for that long... either way, still got lots of experience on me Pierre.
    I dig that handle. What is it, an antler point or a horn?

    Walrus ivory and amboina burl. It took me many years to find a design that would adapt to the materials on hand, since the tip of the tusk was rather small, and I used a damasteel leftover for the blade. The stumbling block was how to make the transition between the two of them...
