Awesome looking knife. Did you do it all yourself or were parts from a kit?

Thanks. At the moment I am buying premade blanks they are made by jantz knife supply in Oklahoma using high grade metals and professionaly heat treated so the blade is better than what you can buy from a production style knife. The handle material can be just about anything in the world.

Thanks. I hadn't heard about Jantz. I've bought from texas knifemaker supply before but Janzt looks like it has a better selection given the different steel qualities for each design choice.

I made 2 knifes from Damascus blanks about 10 years ago. The first I gave to my dad and the second got lost the first time I took it out fishing with a buddy. My buddy got stung by a bee and didn't know he was allergic. Started turning red, shaking, and had a hard time breathing so we ran to the car, threw our junk in and took off for the nearby convenience store to get him some antihistamines (the nearest hospital was an hour away). Somewhere during that mess the knife got lost. I haven't talked to the guy in years since he married a crazy B. Last I heard he started carrying an epi pen around.

Yeah jantz is very reasonably priced and since I live in tx it's cheaper for me not to use Texas knife supply since I have to pay taxes plus shipping. Jantz also has flat rate shipping $10 no matter what you order. I just made a big order today so I'll post up some more pics as I get some more finished.

That stinks about losing the knife. I hate losing knives
