Thanks Chris. There have been a few of the scolloped handles since I did the first one and they are surprisingly comfortable with the finger tips finding natural position in the lower scollops on the apropriate side and that they have an nice visual which adds a little something that the plain canvas micarta lacks.Happy Hunting,
I'm liking the scalloped handle look.
Unfortunately I can no loonger offer the possibility of giraffe bones for knife handles.
After a very long and somewhat frustrating series of events the giraffe bone that was started on its journey fro SA in feb has finally ended with it being siezed for destruction by NZ customs. There was delays in finding a shipping agent who would carry them from SA and the cites permit was not updated before it left so it had expired 5 days before it arrived here and the forwarding agent was another 8 weeks before they got on to it and presented it to customs which was all that they needed to sieze them. Have been in almost constant communication with them over the last few weeks along with my friend who sent them from SA and they have been obnoxious in thier refusal to allow for an updated permit to be presented.
I can get camel bone but it is cut into scales and needs a liner under it to give it the needed thickness but that is usually black and the contrast is visually very pleasing. In Kitchen knives without bolsters it works very well and with black bolster on hunting knives it is very nice indeed.I feel sorry for all the headaches this has caused you.
There is nothing worse than giving a nobody a little bit of power. They all become instant psychopaths.
Is there other bond that could work too? I once heard of knife handles made from wildebeest bone?
@Von Gruff does nice work. I would suggest you reach out to him in a PM. You will have options you did not know about. If it helps, the knifes are working art. We are please with what we have received and looking forward to the ones on order.those buffalo skiners are quite nice! are they available?
Your set in this lot.
