Offering up one handmade knife of bidders choosing. I'm very much a novice at this, and with work, home life, etc., I have limited time to devote to it, and hence I'm very slow. I don't have the talent that Tippit and others on here have, but I have still have fun with it.

Here are a couple of examples that I've worked on in the past - removal from bar stock. These are 440C stainless so I had to ship them out for heat treating. I'm happy to work with stainless, or I can do a Bowie that would be non-stainless - top bidder's choice.

I'll cover all, and of course, Ellie will help me along in the build. [Smile]

Unfinished hunter style (has not been cleaned up since heat treat):

Almost finished drop point hunter (mid clean up):

Here's a very rough example - still very rough as I'm still working on it. I learned a ton doing this knife - mistakes I don't plan on making again.

Knife for the auction will be fully finished.

I'll throw this out as an option as well - one I've started that I'd planned on keeping - 10" from tip of blade to where guard will start.

Again, this is very, very rough - a work in the early stages.

Just realized this might be the first year in several I didn't have a cookie or bracelet heading my way from Ellie.

That won't do.
