    This is outstanding, could you one similar with a little antler added to the stacked leather and still have the buttcap, possibly with a 5” drop point blade?

    This is a knife I made for my dad. It has a large clip point blade forged from 440-C stainless steel. the handle is made from "thunderstorm" micarta which is made from brass wire and Kevlar. The pins are brass. I'd love to know what you think!

    Just wrapped up this commission piece. definitely happy with it. It's always nice when you can get a pair of antler scales to look nice and feel good!
    The blade is 4.5" long, 1/8" thick and forged from 80CRV2. The handle is antler with brass pins and lanyard tube. The overall length is 9". I'd love to hear your thoughts!

    Just finished up this one for a member. blade is 5.5" forged 1095. The handle is Black canvas micarta with a brass guard and pins. This one is really comfortable and well balanced.

    Remember this one? :) @t.darrah has it passing around at the moment. My favorite so far of the Puukko's I've got my hands on.
