His and hers custom hunter/skinners
Polished 8670 steel, custom scales from @twistedbunnie
knives, brass/stainless pins.
Two of only three knives that I will ever make with this profile. I didn't keep a template for this design, with the specific intent of never fully copying the design. If a customer were to want one of these, it would be a similar design, but not an exact copy. This is my philosophy on my custom knives, while I have several production templates for knives that I will offer with choices of handle material, blade steel, etc, my custom knives will always be unique, and made to order. If a certain custom design happens to catch my fancy for a production knife, I will ask the customer permission to use the profile and negotiate a deal.
These are some of the very first knives from my bench, the first made on my new grinder, and I'm quite proud of them! They are going to a lovely newlywed couple as a gift. My buddy Mark loaned me the funds to buy my grinder with the agreement that I'd make him a knife. Come to find out it was for his fiance. Well, I just had to make sure that he had his own custom blade, so I made him one as well.
