Was a local knife show so I entered this knife because the rules stated you must use local wood of your area for the handle scales. The knife is a clip point with fancy file work along the spine. The thumb guard I made from a solid piece of brass and then also did some file work. The pommel of the knife I used a Proof .999 Sterling Silver coin and epoxy resin, to hold it in place and a few coats over the coin for a lifetime protection. The handle was made from an old birch tree, solid but extremely lite weight, found in the woods across the street where I live. I did 6 coats of Tung oil on the handle then buffed with Flitz. The sheath was a kit that I purchased for $10.00 as a closeout. If I purchased just the leather alone it would have cost twice that amount. I did some design work and staining to the leather. Spent allot of time on the project a few years ago. But it was worth it, the knife took 1st place and I won $500.00!!! Came in handy...lol.  I was asked to please post more of the knives you've made here on the BoB,  so for the 2 to 4 people that usually comment, just for you guys!!

PS
It's a full hidden tang knife
Hangs on the wall of my bedroom

KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

I Alex say this with sound mind as the cold medicine i took 5 mins ago hasn't taken effect.  Ted you got this. I have never seen a blade that rivals the ones you craft.

Thanks Alex, there are plenty of well skilled knife makers around who take pride in their work, and some use to be's that sold their name....lol. It's just amazing what's out there at the shows. Before I became ill I made many knives, now just pipes and tampers, and enjoy the craft.

HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER, you should just rest today.

I like that one, a lot.

FWIW, I do look at the knife threads, custom jobs or otherwise. I just don't comment all the time. "I like that one a lot" may be a slight ego boost or perhaps offer the comfort of peer acceptance, but it doesn't communicate much else. I really do wish we had a 'like/dislike' or thumbs up/thumbs down system. We could enable the 'Karma' feature but that system rewards quantity with little care about quality. A guy
