The beginnings of a new batch.

Here are three new patterns for my next batch of knives. I love coming up with new stuff. This should be fun!

Christmas knives finished

Last night I finished up the Christmas knives for my Mother and my Mother in Law. I also finished up a couple that had been floating around in the shop for a while.
They are pairing knives made of 1095 high carbon steel with stabilized pink spalted maple handles set up for neck sheaths.

I am regretting that I only made two. I am thinking that one with blue G10 and another in black linen Micarta would be pretty nice.

This is a close up of the one that I am giving t0 my mother. She gets this one because there is a dog in the spalting of this handle and she has a dog (Lily).
