    Finally got around to ordering a Bushlore blank this winter, and some Acrylic-type handle material. Rough-sizing it is not too difficult, it drills easily...I get a little too focused when doing something like sometimes to, uhh...remember to take pictures. Through the magic of forgetfulness, here's my new knife from start to finish! I did decide to add another pin later (no pics of that, either!), and it will probably continue to evolve with further handle refinements. It's a bit slab-sided at the moment, but I do prefer a larger handle, due to some old-man's-hand issues. I like it so far. Gotta make some pants for her...

    Nice. What kind of sheath do you plan?

    My favorite knife now is my stock Bushlore.

    Thanks, guys!
    Probably something like this one, sized up a little bit. Do you have a favorite pattern? P4140011.JPG

    No, not really. I know the Bushlore isn’t a pure Kephart, but I think I will make something like what it appears he might have used. One like this:

    Gotta love a project like that! Well done. Looks like you have left enough material in the handles to contour it a bit more if you like after some use.
