    Hey guys just finished this drop point hunter for a custom order.
    154 cm with Wenge handles
    4" blade with 4.5 " handle
    Wenge wood scales attached with 2 nickle silver tubes and one stainless steel pin.
    The sheath has a dual carry belt strap
    Thanks for looking

    Nice clean way to get two carry positions. Better than all those straps some people use.

    Was working on a sheath design very similar.

    Well done and very clean sheath. I just finished a paring knife in wenge. Its slivery as hell to work with but can have some very nice grain to it.

    Slivery... worst damn sliver I ever had took a few days to get it out because it kept breaking off. Looks nice but keep it out of your skin

    Yes I read that it can be very slivery so I made sure to wear my gloves. Lots of open pores as well. I filled most of those with super glue and sanding dust.

    If you want to talk slivers, you should have been around when i took a 2x3x18 block and carved a full California style framing hammer handle out of it. It turned out stunning, but man was it a pain to work with. Not just the potential for slivers, but also the potential for tear outs that would be been a nightmare to fix.

    No thanks, using 2 grit files for polishing Ebony right now. Oh I wish there was a better way to shape this wood, belts slide and cut little and course files barely touch it.

    Very nice. I have used wenge once and like it. I will definitely be picking up more when I see it. Another very slivery wood is black palm and it chips out very easy. It is probably my favorite non burl wood.

    I picked up this wenge from Windsor plywood here In edmonton. They have a pretty good selection of exotic hardwoods plus the store is right down the street from my work so I often wander through on my lunch break.... I got a 1" × 10" x 24" piece for about $50 plus I grabbed an ebony finger board ( about 4"x 24" x about 3/8" thick) for $20

    It's funny. In Edmonton you have Windsor plywood. Here in Windsor I got nuttin. The most exotic wood I can find locally around here is boards of walnut. Lol.

    Good looking knife Jason! Clean lines.
    I like the dual carry idea on the sheath too. Smart.
