    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.

    Man, I like those knives. Both are very well executed and the designs are well thought out. Very nicely done.

    What happened to my images? They were working fine for days and then disappeared?

    Very nice knives! The more I see osage orange, the more i like it, even more when it's paired with something as you did here.
