just got this one from chuck cook; has a sharpened end with a 6 1/2" blade and 4 1/2" handle.
Just got my Bush knife.
a knife from the czech knifemaker ondra kasuba..
the usual looking but intriguing knife shape instantly made me interested..i asked ondra to put some nice simple wood on the blade and he came up with pin oak (swamp oak)..knife is forged and the blade differentially heat treated with a beautiful natural hamon..
i gave it to my best friend for his 30th birthday...was not easy but was worth to see that look on his face
Western - Stockman
Sounds like a draw knife to me.
beautiful gift, traffic ...
Where did you get the kydex for that mini bush lore? It looks like a nice set-up.
the frontier knife made by peto hornak got tuned up...peto made the pin even with the handle...it fits my hand perfectly now and I kind of like the looks more then before.. the second knife is again a custom from vojtech destensky from CZ...steel is D2, handle green canvas micarta with black liners..one of his designs that reminds me of the mora companion a bit, but its definitely a beefed up version..a great knife
really nice work ...
Modified the handle/scales as I messed up my original grip. I wanted to do this in the first place, but was afraid I would mess it up. Turned out pretty good and feels great in the hand.
Who is the maker on the bottom knife
http://www.c2gfab.com/ that's the link
This just came in :-D
The knife looks fantastuc and promising! The sheath feels abit cheap and boring though.
Also got a sheath for the jr necker in the same shipment
my first custom knife ever, that I was given by my grandfather upon graduation, also made by ondra kasuba...if i never had any other knife than this first custom i would have been more than satisfied.blade is high carbon steel differentially heat treated with a natural hamon and patina..handle is american walnut..a very cool knife...
but you all know the disease called knives...
made a knife from a condor woodlaw blank,used knitting needles no5 for pins from a secondhand store since im poor
everything done by hand except drilling the pinholes.
some of my fixed blades....
Dug out all my case pocket knives and looked up all the tang stamps for date windows they were made in. Most of these were handed down by my father over the years. Some are fairly old and worn but still work just fine.

Rehandled a Mora Companion HD blade
Recently scored this awesome pair, in a trade from a fellow forum member.. Both are Lauri blades with birch bark and walnut handles.. They're pretty darn nice..
This is most of my fixed blades. I'll redo it with all my stuff again.
you all know this knife .. handle is/was green linen micarta..i have had it for a few years now..primarily designed as a hunting/food prep blade, but can stand its ground with many different tasks you can see it has seen a fair amount of use, mainly because it is still very portable and easy to take with you...i love the sheath shape..
i have reshaped the handle butt a bit, just to make it more comfortable and have put linseed oil regularly on the sheath it has a very nice coloring to it now..

yep, That IS The Knife !! just few made in this Galaxy ...only for Bush Jedi Masters ! -made By Blade Master Jedi IZ , the Soldier River Model
(yeah ,..that's dirt on it )
These are currently on my workbench. The top is my interpretation of a Bowie, 12 inch total length.
The second (no handle) was a freehand design based on a mold I made for the handle. Can't decide on handle material.
Didn't like how the bottom two came out. Not sure where to go with those.
I went kind of overboard with the Bowie, trying new techniques. I made the brass hold and pommel from bar stock. The handle is ebony and mahogany with a copper divider. Was supposed to be all mahogany , but it split as I was driving the pins.
Tried my hand at some file work too. All the steel is 1095 barstock, 3/8 thick. All were fun to make.
Little bit obsessed with knives
Nah...I don't think so
