    Some new Karelian Birch handle blocks arrived from the Ukraine this morning. I am quite partial to the gold flecks in the blue and green blocks and the red and black will have a variagated finish that will make a nice visual on the handle.



    I have traded with a taxidermist friend in South Africa for these and he is just waiting on the cites paperwork before getting them away to me. Costly but my customer base loves giraffe bone with the previous lot I got being used in short order . Makes for a very nice handle either on its own or complemented with contrasting bolster

    A set for a friend / worker in the inward goods section of a natural/organic store and the lever is often used for wood boxes where the nipple nose is used against the side of cardboard boxes to prevent over penetration against the product packaging inside. The knot hook is not sharpened as in a gut hook but is used to get into knots where produce is tied with rope/string. This set is dreived from my light rescue set.

    The closed sheath is a new style I am offering on some of my models. Originated after conversation with Eurpoean hunter so this pair is off to him soon. One for the Safari knife with camel bone with black G10 liners over curve back buffalo horn bolster and the other to suit a PH EDC that he already has on hand

    The new Tahr Hunter design. The specs for the first commission were to have a FF grind on the .156 1095 blade and an inch of jimpinh.with otrange G10 liners under the scolloped OD canvas micarta scales with lanyard tube in closed sheath with honing steel. I liked the concept so much I made an extra one for myselfbut minus the honng steel (like I really need another knife.)

    A skinner with camel bone over black G10 liners and curve back buffalo horn bolster on the 1084 blade. Honing steel in stamped sheath. Really liking the white bone over black liners for the contrast.

    Just finished this Heavy Hunter with antler over curve back buffalo horn bolster and pomel on the 5 inch x .170 1075 blade







    The buff horn pomel didn't show up well in the available light
