Here is my latest. I don't usually use some of the more exotic woods but i like how this one turned out. The blade is 52100 worked down from 2" bar, bronze gaurd with a handle of buffalo bone and paudak. This sweetheart is on her way to Colorado. The blade is about 4"

Jared,

Sweetheart is an understatement. She's sweeter than sweet. You must be cupid, because where ever she goes all will fall in love with her.

Beautiful Jared: I was wondering how you were going to work the buffalo bone when you stated you were going to try to use it in a handle.

You came up with an excellent design. The rounded surface of the proximal end of the handle completely protects the bone from breaking from impact on some hard surface if the knife should be dropped.

Excellent and well thought out design and workmanship!

I like the shape of the guard. is it wider at the top edge than at the bottom?

Thank's guy's. Joe, i like to taper my gaurds from the top of the gaurd into the handle material with a gradual radius. I like to put a little waist line to my lady's.  Wink

Mreich, I use an elctro chem etcher to mark my blades with. you can etch or mark with them and a single stencil will last for about 50 knives if you are careful with it. I get my stencils from http://www.erniesknives.com/. He makes great stencils.
