    Default Handmade skinner in 154cm and red lined micarta

    It took me all day to make this knife, I ran into a few set backs but I guess it turned out ok...even though it was touch and go for a while.

    8" total
    3 1/4" blade made of 154cm @ 3/16 stock thickness
    handle is red linen micarta with two brass Mosaic pins and matching lanyard tube along with brass bolster. Spine has vine file work back filled with black epoxy.

    Great looking knife.
    I had a compass, but without a map, it's just a cool toy to show you where oceans and ice are.

    Truly gorgeous work. I'm not sure what you find questionable about that first one. The buyer is sure to love it.

    Both Blades Look Great And The Black One Just Looks Sleak and Super Sweet .

    Very nice. I really like the spine on that first one.

    2nd sheath completed, I pressed a kydex sheath then decided to give it some leather horizontal carry straps, I love the way the kydex locks up the knife and the comfort of the leather straps.
