    October is Pastor appreciation month, and because knives are the best thing I can offer, I decided to build a couple of Hunters, and give my Pastor choice of the two.... to show my appreciation for all he does.

    Both are fairly simple, first is a 3 1/2" blade of differentially heat treat 1084, Fluted Nickel Silver guard, and a Maple handle, with 14 coats of Tru-Oil....

    Next is the same type/size of blade, but I jazzed up the handle a bit with 1/2 Black Ash Burl, and 1/2 African Blackwood, with a bit of texturing.....

    Whichever the Pastor doesn't choose, will be available sometime next week on the website.

    both are gorgeous. I really like how you stippled the sheath on the second one to match the stippling in the handle. Very nice touch.

    Very nice Ed. That won't be an easy choice, but you folks will have to take the winner out deer hunting.

    Thank for showing it, Craig
