    I wish they were all mine, but unfortunately they are not! In fact none of them are; I've got an awesome design for mine when the next one comes out but for now I need mine as a blank to do the interchangeable handles. They are all for others on the forums!

    Thanks mrappraisit. I did take my time in orienting the grain to the knife. Glad you like it!


    Mr Sparkitle--Mighty impressive 1st post. I too am doing a leather sheath for the mule. Nice looking knife there!

    Cheers,
    Mike

    raythebigfoot,
    You do some fantastic work! Your scales are gorgeous and your leather work is beautiful as well.
    I hope my sheath comes out half as good.

    Cheers,

    Thanks a bunch!! I really like that pink ivory handle you did; I'm actually getting some curly pink ivory stabilized right now to possibly use on one. Good job on keeping the contours even on both sides.

    I actually think I just got lucky with my sheathwork; it just so happens that there's a tandy leather store 10 minutes away and there's a guy there that's been doing leatherwork for about 45 years. When I go to the store it's almost like taking private leatherworking classes. He will literally spend an hour or two with me each time I'm in there showing me the ropes. It's awesome!

    CoPilot, I think you got a defective version... It looks pretty rusted to me.
