A new "Hunter" finished

This one was a special order for an acquaintance. He saw a previous Hunter I built and ordered one for his son.

It's 1/8" 1095, Japanese Chestnut scales with black spacers and brass hardware. It has a wicked sharp edge! I made a sheath for it as well.

Super clean design. Nice knife!

I really like the edge treatment on that sheath too. That rounded edge is cool!

Thanks for the kind comments. I feel like every one finished now is just a little better than the one before.

Very nice I like the profile of the blade! The choice for handle material complements it well. I have never thought about colored thread but the red really looks good with that stain. Two thumbs up!!

If I capture those three factors in each knife I build, I am assured the knife will become a piece that is used and treasured by its owner!

Thanks for the comments.

I started making sheaths with sort of a "natural" looking thread that had a sinew look when finished. It was fine but I watched some videos from Jacklore knives and he routinely uses colored thread, mostly red or green and he will match the sheath thread color to the liner color on the knife. I thought the red looked cool and tried one and just adopted it.
