I Made A Couple More Knives

    Thanks Shawn. I just shipped it to my lil sis today, I think she'll like it.
    Here's another. This is my spin on a 'Wharncliffe' or 'sheepsfoot' stlye of blade design. It's my understanding that the origin of this blade shape came from early sailing. Later used for other things including some ranchers that took a liking to them over the years for various tasks.

    All of your Trout are belong to me.

    I can’t see whether the cutting blade on that one is 100% straight or de-curved just a bit.

    Love the handle material on that one.

    That one is a straight edge.
    Here's the last knife pics for a while and I probably won't bug you guys for another year or so.
    I made this for a friend who spent a few days at the mine with me last year helping with a reclamation project which was a lot of hard work.

    All of your Trout are belong to me.
