    A gift to my FIL.

    Edit, why does "insert" picture just skip the insert picture part and post without the pic?

    A little something for the Go Bag-- Benchmade Saddle Mountain Skinner. Had my eye on this one for awhile --picked it up earlier this month on a trip to Nashville to visit my son and look at properties. Nashville Armory---nice gun store if you're ever in Free America...look them up and drop on in.

    I have the same blade but with different scales and sheath. It will serve you well. My hunting buddy and I have twin skinners.....he uses his a lot more though. They are heavy enough to be used for breaking joints. I've beat mine through a spine or two and jammed it into hip sockets to cut the tendon. All I do is clean it up and sharpen it.

    Over the last several years, I've gotten into knifemaking. I haven't yet delved into the forging of blades yet, instead buying knife blades, then making handles to create something individualized.

    My son's best friend's wedding is coming up in October. For a wedding shower present, I bought an 8" damascus chef's knife blade, along with a 3.5" paring knife.

    For both knives, I used scraps of Brazilian Rosewood given to me by a cabinet-maker friend. Below are pics with an enlargement of the handle. The swirl in the grain is just stunning. After sanding to 400 grit, I applied 3 coats of Truoil, followed by buffing with white rouge. The handle is as smooth and shiny as glass.

    Haven’t made one in a while with everything going on, but a close friend asked me to make one for his wedding so got the grinder going again.

    Great looking knife. Don't be scared to try stock removal, it is a good next step before trying to forge. You can outsource heat treatment and it requires much less tooling and space. It opens up your options and imagination.

    Very cool to see other makers around. Here is my recent project, just finished.

    That's beautiful! Very nice job. What wood did you use for the handle scales?
