Hi Everybody ,This is Darci and I have Made Knife # 8 This weekend.
the billet is made of 1095-15n20 low layer my POPS made it for me. and I hand forged the blade some i was trying to get the look of the knives the Alaskans use for skinning ,you know that curve that their old skinners had ,but also I wanted it to look like a western knife also.
I need to make some money for High School Softball ,My POPS has paid all year for travel ball ,and the high school wants 375.00 for travel,uniforms,etc..... so I wanted to pay for this myself to help him out. so after i talk to him I'm going to Raffle this knife off,this is the first time I got to do the etching of the logo and it didn't turn out as nice as I wanted but I can't change it now.:sad::sad: I did everything on this knife with no help from POPS ,with every knife he's helping me less and less .I still I'm going to fix the pins some ,make them a little nicer then I'm done,I might try a sheath just one of the kraylex ? ones but I don't think Pops has the rivets ,Hope you like ,I took the pix's also ,I need lots of work on pix's also ,:biggrin:When I get to knife # 10 I get my own Logo YAAAAAAAA. O I forgot the knife is 7 1/4" long with a blade of 3" and the wide part of the blade is 1 3/8" wide and it starts out 1/4" thick and the handle is some horn POPS had in the shop I think elk.

Jeff, It would be perfect for the Mrs.
It has great balance and feel and a good safe grippy, grip.

When I grow up, I want my own "Third Base" knife.

I hate that I lost this knife in the fire it meant so much to me. It is things like this that can't be replaced.

I feel silly for what I posted with out looking at dates and why it was reposted. Jeff I have no idea what it must feel like to lose everything but you are in my thoughts and prayers keep on keeping on!

Thanks. When we started knife dogs I did all the fund raising we helped a lot of people. Darci was one that we helped take a trip.
