    Hello from the Land of 10,00 Lakes

    These 2 were made from the same whitetail rack. Both are made from .103" 154CM. I made the top one first and used brass hardware. I used 303 stainless for the bottom one. I like the bottom one better. I am becoming fond of 303. I think it looks classier than brass, but brass has its place...

    Hunter in 1080

    I still consider myself a Newbie, as I have been making knives for less than 2 years. I have received feedback about my handles being blocky and have been trying to make them better looking. So, I am asking for honest opinions of this handle and blade as well. 1080- 3/16" RC 60 Bocote...
