1084 and Antler
« on: April 15, 2018, 08:09:13 PM »
Made this one for a friend who is using it as a patch knife.  My wife did the carving on the crown.

Very Nice, looks like a handy little knife. Great carving on the antler as well!

Thanks KSCATTRAPR!

This has been a handy basic design.  I do a number of different handle treatments for this pattern.  They are small enough to wear as a neck knife, yet more than enough to field dress a deer.
