    New mule for a customer

    This is a new set of handles for a customer. This is the first time I have made a set of handles that screw on , instead of glue on. I am very pleased on how it turned out, and I know that my customer will be too!

    Hector, that's a very nice job. I know the customer you did that for, and I think he will be pleased.

    I have a pair of blades I'd like for you to make handles for. I already have the Micarta, and will get in touch with you.

    Very nice work!

    Hector, Thank you for your excellent work on Dave's Mule. It was a pleasure doing business with you. I'm sure I will have you do work in micarta (canvas) for me, after I acquire Mule6, and who knows...if Sal decides to sell off the Bushcrafts as seconds...I might even end up with one of them. Your Bushcraft sure was nice! And thanks for showing off your Spydie Roll. You have a great collection!

    Mule sheath picture

    Here are some sheaths that I made for my mules. The first one is made of Chrome tanned leather and is a cross draw sheath. The stamping did not come out well, and the dye is light. Lessons learned. Chrome tanned leather should not be used for this. You have to use Vegtable oil tanned leather, or tooling leather for this.

    The second sheath is Veg tanned leather, tooled by me and hand sewn.

    Here is one I finished with dyed and stabilized Box Elder burl for a forum member who told me to share some images. Yellow and black liner material used. It really looks much better in person.

    Thank you RIOT.
    The owner had a good idea with the double liner. Folks seem to really like that mosaic pinstock in particular. Today I will be putting the finishing touches on a Mule with stabilized Buckeye with black liners.

    I love seeing how well these can turn out. Also a few months later getting pics of the knife with elk or deer dressed in the background is pretty sweet.

    My thanks to Spyderco for the Mule knives. Please keep them coming.

    Buckeye Burl

    Here is one I finished over the weekend. Don't get the idea that I have only one pin. Though apparently I only have one good looking pin.

    I usually just cord wrap mine, but I recently made a try at carbon fiber scales. The first didn't come out too well, but the second was a little better.



    This one is for The Deacon (I know he loves tie-dye )

    I don't believe in safe queens, only in pre-need replacements.

    Any direction on how to wrap a Mule or similar naked knife?

    Gorgeous work!

    I would love to see the un-oiled scales in the brown and grey
