    Curly maple hunter

    She's a beauty, love that curly maple handle! It has some serious even curl. A lot of times you will see a handle that looks good on one side and not so good on the other!! A very good use of materials. Really like everything about it!

    Every once in a while somebody just wants a big Bowie.

    In case some are not familiar with Marks work. I have been following him for years. His handles are in themselves a masterpiece. Here is a shot of another masterpice that he had posted on another forum years ago! So if you think I am out of line poking fun at Mark. I am just honoring the master...
