It only took 8 pounds of titanium to make this 9 oz handle. :)

I didnt have any 2 inch wide titanium, so I have to make it out of 2 pieces of 1 inch Ti and dovetail the sides together. The tang wedges in and locks it all in place. Made the blade an inch longer than the originals because I wasnt gonna cut an inch off and toss it.

the sheath is made out of G10

New and old, I couldnt resist

Thanks for looking! :)

Hey Les, that is one fine looking trench knife! I really like how you dovetailed the pieces together and the blade grind is outstanding. Is that a Winchester or Ithaca riot gun? Hope you and Bianca and the pups are doing well. And congratulations on your numerous collaborations with production companies. Semper Fi

That's a Winchester 97. I'm pretty fond of the 1897 shotguns. My great grandfather's 1897 was the first gun I ever fired.

Ya learn to keep your thumb down, fast!

Ok Les, that's not even fair.
Unbelievable workmanship creates beautiful simplicity.

Merry Christmas to you and the lovely Miss Bianca.
