    I just enjoy making each and every knife. This one came out a little different. The quench line really sets it off I think. I was going for the old timey look of ivory that's why I chose the paper micarta. I think real ivory would have been much cooler but also more expensive.

    A good caping knife has to be able to cut lots of heavy hair. Getting a caper that can cape a moose without being sharpened is rare. You never know how good your knife is until the first job is finished.;)

    The elk I have got the last 5 years have all been gutted and skinned with my knives. Also the Javelina. They have never let me down. I'll never use another store bought china knife.

    I have never carried 4 knives while elk hunting. One good knife that can take and hold an edge is what I carry. The art of making custom knives is proven on the first downed moose.:)

    I told a friend who I made a few knives for that I'd take a video of my next elk kill using some of my own knives. That's the reason for multiple knives. The reason I changed knives was to see how each one worked given it's size and shape.

    The knife in this thread has a 2 1/2 inch blade. If you're going to gut and skin a moose with a 2 1/2 inch blade, I guess you win the "more of a man" contest. I'm more of a right tool for the right job kinda guy :rolleyes:
