Paela and 1095 and African Sumac and 1095

Here are two Knives I just finished. Both have real hard to find wood...Both are 3/32" 1095 Steel. The top Knife has the "Paela" scales (which I love) and the bottom one has the "African Sumac" (A pinkish wood with black stripes, that I really like also)......Both are around 8 3/4" overall length. The handles on both are 4 1/4" long ...Blades are 4 1/2" long to front of scales..
Both Knives have different blade styles.Thanks for looking!!

Nice looking knives. The African Sumac has a great look.

Frank, as usual they both look great!

C Craft Customs
With every custom knife I build I try to accomplish three things. I want that knife to look so good you just have to pick it up, feel so good in your hand you can't wait to try it, and once you use it, you never want to put it down !
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!

WOW! That wood is beautiful!

I really love the slight patina on the second one. It goes great with that wood.

Excellent work as usual Frank.
