    Hi Stephan,

    The second photo with the ferrule and Stag is the winner.

    Are you going to sharpen the clip?

    Who is doing your sheath work.

    Are you testing for JS this year?

    I am definitely going with stag on this one, I'll make another very similar and do that one with Wrought Iron and Blackwood

    The clip is a gnats hair shy of being sharp, I had planned to leave it that way

    I've been having Sandy Morrissey do my nice pieces but I had an inlayed sheath in mind for this one so I'll be contacting Paul Long about this one
    I make a halfway decent sheath for a working knife, but I just don't have the skills to match a nice knife.

    No JS test this year, I didn't manage to get to the ABS school and shave the wait time down so I have to wait till next year.


    Les, thanks for the input, I very much appreciate it

    Stephan

    This one is just now completed

    I haven't really decided what I'm doing for a sheath on this one

    I hadn't planned to bring any of these smaller blades but I had several requests so I made some
