Well, here is my latest build. It is a boot style knife with a nice short handle. I have about 9 hours in this one and I've been building 2 others at the same time. The steel runs to the end cap on this knife so it is strong and has a nice balance! Please tell me what u think.

Thank you. It came out better than I expected. I can't wait to get it back from my leather guy and set it up for sale on a local shop here in town.

Just finished this one tonight. A little gold colored skinner. With a aluminum pin and hilt.

I need one. I'd like to replace my KABAR with something custom. I'm broke right now though.

You just let me know we can work something out. I'm sure! Find a style u like and post a pic then I'll see what I can build. If u like it then we will work out a very reasonable deal.

I start a new job hopefully next week, so we may be able to work something out pretty soon.
