    I know someone in northern Minnesota who forges knives. He wants to do a joint project with me where I would make carved handle cheeks. The designs and the first finished pair:

          Great design work. What's the stock material? Your bladesmith friend should be pleased.

              Thank you! The wood is holly, which is one of several that I like for carving small and intricate detail.

                Great detail on your scales Calyton, They look like they should be fairly comfortable to use also. Hope we see the finished knife.

                If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

                    Those will be some cool knives, Nice detail. One question thou, I had bought some knife blanks and wanted to carve the handles, do you think it would be easier to carve attached with the blade taped up?

                      Thanks! The blades are being made by someone else, and he likes to make his blades after the handles are made so that he can fit the steel to them. I don't think it is too hard to carve like this. I just glue them down with cyano acrylate temporarily to a board that is clamped to my workbench.

                        I hope the blade is worthy of those scales. Nicely done, Clayton.

                          Great scales those will definitely make that knife a looker.
