    Now to finish these Babies up, and get some REAL knife pictures up, with them all dressed up and nowhere to go!! LOL The next pics they won't be "Naked". As much as I want to use my Ironwood, I haven't quite made my mind up. The Bowie will be dressed out in Lacewood, but the Nessie........... I think I just may surprise y'all.

    Well I decided on which scale I will use for this project. I drilled the holes today and I will try putting it together tomorrow or Tuesday. I think I'm going with the Buckeye Burl. This is a picture of the scales.
