    KIMG0180.JPG KIMG0181.JPG My recurve setup. I put together a takedown using a ilf riser and limbs for a 68" amo (I have a very long draw length). I added camo socks and made a arrow rest out of stabilized buckeye burl and Velcro carpet. Quiver was made by me.

    Hey brother just wanted to let you know that after some light stropping my Cumulus shaves better than my much thinner Mora.

    Finished the sheath. Thinking about designing a different belt loop so it will hang at an angle. KIMG0199.JPG KIMG0200.JPG

    Nice job Will. I've been using both knives quite a bit. Mostly skinning and processing furbearers and a couple deer. Scary sharp

    Keep up the good work brother

    Very nicely done, brother. I think you did a great job on this knife. Do you do and regular dangler sheaths?

    Would anyone else be interested in a WSK style knife. If so I'd be willing to ship you mine so you could play around with it.

    All three have been posted for sale in the classifieds without sheaths. I can make sheaths for them in the style you would like and have the combo shipped to you with only a few days wait.
