My latest knife

Post by >>>---WW----> » Thu Aug 23, 2012 6:20 pm

Here is a picture of the last one I made. The engraving has an elk foot print in it. I haven't finished the handle yet. It is made of elk antler. I may embed an elk ivory in it on the end. And I'll probably put a finger notch in the antler just behind the hilt/finger guard.

Nice touch, I like the engraving. I need to find a mentor here in Hawaii.

Nice! I like the idea of the embeded elk ivory.
