A 4x4 Hunter with both the horrozontal sheath (10 degrees down for security) and the standard behind the hip sheath. 4 inch blade of 1084 with curve back buffalo horn and exhibition walnut. black micarta pins in handle with my 3 pin brass mark in the bolster.

    I believe if memory serves mme right that yours was a Hunter Skinner and this is a new design that was a collaboration with a customer from AU about 12 months ago. His had cross grained Red Gum over brass

    Have to be able to do the opening cut under the skin without digging in on the point so it is a blaance to get the point and the belly right.

    Have these all done now and ready for the heritage day here early november. The shop has another 10 or 12 that I will get back to have a decent display. Just the group pic for today as its been a long one getting all the sheaths sewn, hot waxed and the blades all sharpened so will get some individual pics and details later in the week. Couple of new handle materials in there

    A few pics of the completed knives. Just have to go over and do the final cleaning now of any finger prints and shed clart left after sharpening etc
    First is a skinner and a Boning knife.
    The Skinner has Resin Ivory scales over G10 CB bolsters on the 4 1/4 in 1084 blade and the Boner has Black Palm on the 6 1/4 in 1084 blade


    The PH EDC has brown linen micarta over black linen CB bloster on the 4 3/4 in 1075 blade



    The 4x4 Hunter has a very nice piece of Arizona desertwood over CB buffalo horn bolsters with black G10 liners on the 4 inch 1084 blade

    Two Pocket Rangers. One has Impala jigged buffalo horn c]scales over red G10 liners on the 5 in SS damascus blade and the other has Cherry Burl over CB buffalo horn bolsters on the 5 in 1095 carbon blade





    and a Bird and Trout with rough jigged dyed bone scales on the 4 1/4 in cryo treated NitroV SS blade

    I was dissapointed in the scales as theyhad a nice royal blue on each end but thay was only a surface dye and was ground off with the shaping so I will have to except the other 9 scale sets I have will be the same. Not a bad look in itself , just not what I had expected

    A little fruit knife for the kitchen with spilled milk acrylic on the 3 in cryo treated NitroV SS blade



    This is another of the sheep shear blades with figured Eucalyptus handle and copper pins





    And a roughy to finish with this piece of antler on the 5 in 1084 HC blade. Had the knife sitting for a while but was never happy with the bulk of the antler handle so gave it a severe re-shape and it feels much better in hand and it will serve for a hunter now. Will have to do some tidy up on it before the herritage day display.

    Two of the new design Heavy hunters all done. Blades are 5 inch of .170/4.3mm with the first one being a new personal knife with a lovely piece of exhibition grade walnut over CB buffalo horn on the 1075 high carbon blade.






    Second one has OD canvas micarta over orange liners on a NitroV SS blade
