You're right... the pictures make these blades look so cheap and worthless you should probably send any and all of those which you have photographed with that particular camera my direction for proper disposal before they give you a bad reputation!

Default Blood Letting.....................

Why the heck would any one want a polished knife handle, other than to stick it on the wall. And what good is the knife................If you want colour, use a small propane torch to scorch the handle in certain areas and different shades. Then polish the heck out of it......................The only time a slick handle is safe is when the blood from you or the animal makes it sticky.......

wait...you're going to take a propane torch to a $45 piece of stabilized wood? Save that kind of thing for junk like condors, beckers, moras they usually come with pallet slats for handles.

My knives won't slip in your hand. I've used them for 8+ years skinning elk, javelina and the like. Up to my elbows in blood and guts, never had a problem.

With practice, the torch won't harm the material. It adds colour and beauty to the handle if done right.............I don't use a wood that'll rot or crack from being in the sun too long. My yard knives have handles made from the same material they use in valves for the chem. and oil field serv..........30 plus years, the blade will be gone and all thats left is the handle............lol

The wood on this knife is Black ash burl, dyed and stabilized. At $45 I don't think I could afford to practice much.

Do you have any pics of the wood you use and burn?

Random plug?

Cool stag grip pictured there. Since this thread was started by DT to share some of his handy work... I'd like to see more of his or even the Burned Grip Guy since they make knives.

Gee where do you think I get them? Walmart? I make them one at a time by hand. I hand cut everything and hand pick all materials.
