The first one is a drop point made from tiger stripe obsidian. The trailin` point is triple flow obsidian.

Blades are set in a whitetail antler handle with hoof glue mixed with powdered deer antler, and then overwrapped with deer backstrap sinew. The stand is a section of the same antler.

Sawweeeeet.

Are those for particular customers??

Or


Is there a chance they'll make it to a raffle, or even a trading blanket..?? :biggrin2:

These two are gone, Grit, but, I`m bringin` one to donate for a door prize, and I`ll have at least one more, maybe two, for tradin` and barter.

I had Nicodemus make one of these (like in the second picture) for my Dad a couple of years back and then my wife had also contacted him without me knowing and had him make one for me from the same piece of Obsidian...which gives them added semtimental value.

Nicodemus does some beautiful work without a doubt...

I happened to have been fortunate to have beat, uh, traded Nick outta one of his knives yesterday. I now have two!:banana:

They're different from one another and both are museum quality masterpieces!

They have an edge about 600 times sharper than a surgical scalpel. You can use em. I use em some, and they`ll unzip anything they touch. Most folks use em as display pieces.
