    Default Show off your knives!!

    The last months I wasn't much into archery because I spent a lot of time for my other (and older) hobby - knives. I've made quite a lot of custom handles and decided to share some with my friends here. Hope you'll find them interesting

    Some great looking knives there Alex. Love the woodwork on the handles. Some pretty unique looking patterns in the wood. GREAT JOB! Do you make the blades as well, or buy them? Just noticing the different logos on the blades. Working on building a forge right now, then I'll start my next knife. Gonna be a weird one. lol

    Thanks, guys!
    I don't make the blades, Ehunter. Don't have the necessary tools. I use Swedish and Finnish blades, mostly Hultafors and Mora which are great and come at a good price. The two small knives with a hole in the blade are from a pruning shears, I just reshaped the bevel.
