    Anyone checker handles?

    Why don't you give the guys at Brownells a call. They have the equipment and should be able to help you figure out if this is feasible. Otherwise talk to a local gunsmith. They may be able to teach you how to do it.

    Why not a traditional Butcher's knife?

    OMG Dan that is freakin awesome! I have about 50 old butcher knives and use a few. Started modifying a couple of the broken ones so they can play again. Dan, my favorite knife is still the Nessmuk you sent me for the KITH a few years back. That butcher would work well with it.

    "My very first knife" - post up!

    I brought in a picture to work a while ago to post here and just uncovered it from a pile of stuff. I forged these blades from Nicholson files at a couple blacksmithing events held by Centaur Forge back in '04-'05. There was a lot of cussing and fighting and spittin' trying to get...

    score this weekend!

    Check locally for saw mills. They could slab that up for you in a hurry and then you just have to piece it out. Leave them a little bigger than what you plan to use, so when they fully dry and it moves a little, you will have enough to work with. Great score!

    Got my knife from s2f late on Wednesday. Working on four knives that are due this weekend so I couldn't post yesterday. This is a well made knife for only his 8th one. The knife is solid and should take a beating. This is going to be a user for me, as it's already on my belt and from there...
