I have a friend and co-worker leaving for Iraq in a couple of weeks and he wanted me to make him a knife to carry. Never tried to make a "military" knife. This is knife number #24 so far. I made it with removable scales so it can be taken apart and cleaned. Made a kydex sheath to match his uniform. Payment for the knife. I told him I wanted a silver dollar and a picture from Iraq for the knife. I figured he would just go to the bank and get a silver dollar. Nope. Gave me a beautiful 1885 silver dollar. I was blown away. It's awesome! Next one is a drop point with coconut husk and osage orange scales. Black and white liners. Black,white, and nickel silver stripe. Nickel silver pins. 2017 was a great year! Looking forward to 2018. Hope you are too!
