Curly Maple Hunter
« on: April 22, 2019, 09:43:13 AM »
I worked on this knife off an on for about 2 months and I finished it up this weekend. It is forged 1084 with a stainless guard, titanium spacer and some nice curly maple that ThadBow sent me.  I used a 1/16" nickel silver pin.  I think it is my best one to date.
