$100 to $130 depending on if a sheath is wanted. Or more if some one wants something more detailed.

There's an idea. I'm looking around for some blanks to scale. I'll pm when I decide what I wanna put on 'em.

I can get the saw blades (broken or cracked) for free also. Just something we might be able to work out, if you're interested?

Had a few hours last night got almost all the file work done. Tonight I hope to get some holes drilled and some handles on then tomorrow a good buffing and a nice edge and it's out in the mail.

Looking good.

Saw a custom knife with similar file work, but extended into the handle area. After the slabs were mounted, the file divots in the handle were filled with red epoxy. It looked great that way.

I'm wanting to try some down the handle and around the front or the handle too. I bought a few new files yesterday and can't wait to try some new patterns.
