That little 3 knife set looks to be a fine set of little hunters,, I like the straightforward designs you use ,, nice job indeed, I had to chuckle on Kimbefan's post about the blood,,, know that one pretty well,, my wife thinks I'm nuts, but I reckon that is normal. I wish you well and hope that you can get some schooling and possibly get some apprentice time with a blade smith, always a wonderful source of knowledge and craftsmanship skills.
Good luck in your endeavors.

I had a hold down clamp fail on my drill press a few years ago, the drill bit picked the blade off the deck and spun it in the blink of an eye like a lawnmower blade. The blade caught me even thru a good pair of leather gloves. I got lucky, it healed fine with no permanent damage but it sure got sore. Be ever so careful. I mounted spin "stumps" on my drill press deck to keep that from ever happening again.

This knife was made from a large peace of steel found in Montana on a hunting trip. The metal was found at a old homestead/cowboy camp, then packed out 25+ miles to the guys hunting camp. The handle is from a elk harvested in Montana as well.

Thank you guys. Soon my knives will be my full time job as of January 1st. I hope to be able to pay my bills with my love of this craft. I'm going to only do builds to sell and no custom orders to start. I hope to go to school soon to learn more about this craft from some of the greats. Again thank you guys for the kind words and looking at my builds.
