    Sorry to hear about the work situation ... hope it's temporary and you get back to what you enjoy doing ... soon.

    That's a very nice ooking knife, first time or not.

    Good luck!

    Very nice. It appears you are not an amatuer at knife making. Can you post higher resolution photos of it?

    Looks to be a Damascus blade? Whats the handle made of ?

    I'm thinking you could sell a few knives. Looks awesome and your kids will love them. Nothing compares to a hand made gift.

    Very good looking knife, I'm thinking you could definitely make a little money on the side with those. Very good job.

    Thanks guys Hopefully I will only be off for another 3 weeks. As far as the knives go the wood is spalted maple with buffalo hornand the blade is a damascus unsure who the maker is. I wouldnt mind making a few and selling them but how much would they be worth? I know some of the big name guys go for a good amount but I am just a no name joe making them in his garage. I will post some more pics after I get the other one finished Ryan
