crocodile skinner

its not my normal style of knife,and since the maori people of our country have long ago eaten all the crocs (only crocs left are those comfortable shoes) its not the most practical knife , but i had fun and learnt a few tricks along the way.its almost completly hand hammered damascus ,brass and red deer antler.
let me know what you think...
cheers, case

I was, and I'd still love to make it over sometime, but I don't know when it'll be. Probably no time soon. Was seeing a girl from there, but it kinda fell apart...unfortunately.

Was looking at TradeMe one night after...I think it was you posted about something you were looking at on it. There was a 300+ pound anvil...man I'd have loved that haha.

Very nice lines on that knife!

No crocs here, but more than our fair share of 'gators! They had to open up a hunting season on them a couple years back because the population exploded while they were protected. That plus these critters called nutria invaded the area. They breed like crazy and love to live in the same environment as the gators. Turn out to be perfect sized food for the gators.
