Well here this one is now ready to finish tomorrow if I have to work all day and don't get to go to the Arkansas knife show. Can't wait to do the scales there simple but gonna look so good if all goes well then to the polisher it goes hopefully by Sunday evening. Can't wait to give this one to my buddy.

How are you gettin' the filework so perfectly spaced and cut? Just "eyeballin'" it, or w/a jig? I've always wondered how knife makers did that.

You've cone a long way since the very first one, and it looked real nice as it was!
