Made this up, just cause. I like how it turned out. Elk hide, deer rawhide around the top, elk hair in the brass cones and a coyote claw.

That's a very attractive sheath. I do like those knives, too.

I really like that first knife. Only thing that could make it better in my opinion is maybe a false edge half-way up the back, and that's just a "maybe". I also like the other knife, and was immpressed by the little hooks on the back of the handles. Very cool!

It's amazing the pure talent that abounds on this site. Great job, they are knives that anyone would be proud to own!

How do you do the leather handle wrap? I have an old knife that needs a new one, but I have no idea how that works. I really like your knives. They are fantastic.
