#2 I call my Tactical Hunter made of CPM154 with Sandblasted finish. Handle is Brown dyed Jigged Bone with Forrest Green G-10 Spacer. Custom Sheath from Lins Custom Saddlery in Bronson Texas.

#3 A Drop Point Skinner made of CPM154 with Sandblasted finish. Handle is Afzelia Burl with Red Micarta spacer and file work along spine. Custom Sheath from Lins Custom Saddlery in Bronson Texas

#4 A Drop Point Skinner made from Alabama Damascus. Handle is Spalted Oak Burl, with red Micarta Spacer and file work along the spine. Custom Sheath from Lins Custom Saddlery

#5 A Drop Point Skinner Made from ATS34 Mirror Polished with 7075 T6 Aluminum Bolsters (still to be engraved) Handle material is Camel Bone Red Micarta spacers on handle and red white black Micarta spacers between Bolsters and handle.

These are some I finished this month. (The Alligator Bone Knife I finished last year I just really like it.)

Thanks for the comments guys. I have made knives in Dads shop off and on since about 96 or so. Just started full time this year. Going good so far.

Rich, very nice work!

Your grind lines are very unique. I confess that at first, I thought that perhaps this was an error, but I see that all of your knives share this trait. I quickly noticed how the grind line at the top of the bevel flows back into the belly of the grip--very unique indeed. I've never seen that technique. It really pulls the eye through the whole blade in a clever way.

Congratulations!

Andrew,

Randall Knives popularized that style of grind. I use it a lot myself and agree that Rich did a nice job with it .....

Now that you mention it, it is 'Randalleque' isn't it?

Cool. Thanks for the education.

Thanks guys. I try to get better with every one I do. Sometimes I get caught up in keeping it easy but I like to push myself to try new things as well.
