Well mine has lived up to expectations. A very good knife Griffin. It holds an edge very well and is pretty well balanced

Ok, well I haven't made a knife in a few weeks. But I decided its to got to work and fish all day so I built this for a friend of mine. He's a big guy with big hands and wanted a knife that he could use daily out doors. So here is what I made. Thanks for looking.

That's very unique. Did you silver solder the guard onto the blade?

No I didn't feel the need to on this one. I did use a small amount of epoxy to seal the guard to the blade to help keep moisture from getting down behind the guard. The the tang runs all but a inch through the handle and it is notched and has some fitted pins in the tang to hold to the epoxy in the antler. The guard fit so tight I had to lightly press it up to the blade. I think if the guard moves on this one then the knife must of been destroyed by something running over it.
