    Photo 1 is a knife I made for a Father's Day gift for my dad. I put more time and expense into the project than I was originally planning, but I think it turned out pretty nice. Jantz damascus blade, with nickel silver bolsters and Desert Ironwood handle scales.

    Photo 2 is the same knife, in the red cedar box I made for it.

    Photo 3 is one I made for myself. Didn't really need another hunting knife, but you can never have too many good blades. Jantz S30V blade, with stainless bolsters and Ziricote wood scales.

        Very nice. How'd you learn to make knives, by the way?

          Pretty much self-taught. The internet is a wonderful place to learn things, as long as you know enough to filter out the bull. Read a lot of tutorials and watched a lot of videos, and the rest was trial-and-error. A lot of error. I have always been good at making stuff, so some aspects of it come naturally. I'm still really just an amateur at this though, although I like to think I'm getting better.

                        Interesting choice of handle scales and blade steel!
