    4 inch Hunter in Walnut

    This is a 4inch Hunter in walnut that I just completed. Blade is AEB-L and the handle is figured walnut with black and white liners. This is a rare experiment for me. I am not usually happy with my finishes right off the belt, so this feels like stepping off the ledge to me.

    I'm also playing with mixing leather dyes to come up with something new compared to my typical monocolor, dark sheaths. I was after a more rugged look all around.

    All I did was take my drop point and slant the nose instead of rounding it. I'd love to see your take on it.

    I find this to be a useful all around knife shape.

    Nice John! Really like the contrast the liners bring. I still have not sold a knife with a belt finish yet! I've had some that were very close, but couldn't resist hand sanding.

    The sandpaper called to me every minute until I finally mailed the knife out! I honestly lost sleep over it.

    That is a good looking knife John. The walnut looks good with a belt finish on the blade.
