Thanks Burl! I couldn't be more pleased.

I'm not sure which I'm more pleased with -- the knife or the sheath! Awesome work on both!

Can't wait until deer season to put it to some use...

Glad you like it Delton. If you wanted to sweeten the deal, I had almost forgot the fine looking turkey totes you make.::ke:

I have been out of town some this week. I took my girls up to Pigeon Forge.
Man, we ruled the go cart tracks. :yeah:
One other thing I got to do was to go to the Smokey Mountain Knife Works. I brought back five fixed blade knife blanks, four folding pocket knife kits, and two sword blanks. (Yes, I said Swords! They were four dollars less than the cheepest knife blank I got. :huh:)
I hope to post them here tomorrow. It would be interresting to post the steps and progress as I made them.
All but the 47 pics of sanding and sanding and sanding and sanding and sanding and sanding and sanding and sanding and ...........
I am glad ya'll like the knives and sheaths I made to trade. They were fun to work on.
The gator bones were the crowning jewel for the sheath. At first I thought they looked cheesey, but seeing them here made me change my mind.

I'm sure I have a tote around here some where.. :D

I was wondering what that bone was on there... Couldn't figure it out to save my life, but I like the look it gives the sheath! It off-sets all the brown... Nice touch!

The Bone is from the back of the gator. It is the one that makes the ridges of hard plates. I have several of them.
People who have birds like that bone. The shape is good for beak scratching.
