I have said before about how

I have said before about how great your knives look and the quality in them. Beautiful without being overbearing, and totally functional.

I think this one will be mine actually as Romey and I have been talking. The seasons are nearly over but I can't wait to try one out on game.

Great work.

Romey that is a lovely knife.

Romey that is a lovely knife.  Just a good solid looking piece of art that is actually USEFUL for just about anything that you want to use it for.  Some folks love stainless.  There is no denying the utility of it.  Thanks for sharing the photographs.

Hey Mike. Just to point out

Hey Mike. Just to point out it's only the fittings that are stainless, the blade itself is W2 high carbon steel.

I should have it soon and will be ready to try it out. I'm very interested to see how how it performs.

Thanks to all for kind

Thanks to all for kind comments and apology for not replying sooner I been hunting for last 3 weeks straight. I really liked the knife and seems like the new owner might not give it to his son after having it in hand lol

Just a quick update, I will

Just a quick update, I will post more pictures wehn I get a chance but this is really a beautiful knife. The fit and finish is perfect and balances extremely well in the hand. It may be a few months now before I can put it to the test on fur or feathers but I'm sure I won't be dissapointed. And I did plan to give it to my son for Christmas but not really sure anymore. At least till I get one of my own anyway. Big smile

And right now he's really desperate for an amp for his car. I rarely even listen to the radio anymore.

Wow that is another great looking knife.  One of these days I will take a picture and post it of the knife that was made for me out of an elk shed I found.  A gentleman in Denver built it.
