    OK, I'm dead tired. This was a collab between me and gunsmith Ned Christiansen for the SHOT show. Overall, it's an African theme. He made a howdah pistol and asked if I could supply him with the knife to go with.

    Damascus blade, 416SS bolsters, pre-ban elephant ivory from the same tusk his grips were made from. Fully carved handle treatment. SUPERB custom leather sheath with an inlay of Nile crocodile by Dave Cole of Florida.

    Sorry for the suck-tacular pics but right now I could care less. It's done!

    Thanks Martin. Gotta be my favorite blade shape. Plenty of belly for skinning. Got crazy sharp really fast even before stropping.

    I'm out! Off to badger peeps on your pimp thread! LMAO! :ernie:

    I think that you meant to say "230-grain CorBon" Very nice work indeed.
