    I thought I'd show this knife here. I call it the "High Roller" hunter because of the handle material. This material is MONEY!! No....seriously...it's actually money. :D Real U.S. shredded currency cast in alumilite resin. It's a real high quality product, no cracks, bubbles or voids. Pretty neat stuff, I think. It looks like digicam to me so I thought it would be cool on a hunter.

    Specs:
    Hand-forged from 1075 steel, clay quenched and etched
    8 1/8" overall, 3 7/8" blade, .200" thick at the ricasso with full distal taper
    False edge, just shy of sharp
    Heavily rounded spine and ricasso edge for comfort
    Rounded, filed thumb grip
    Black g-10 collars
    Bronze Coin-edged spacer
    Shredded Money 'moneycarta' contoured handle- material courtesy of http://kobrakydexgear.com/ Thanks man!
    My signature fluting on the butt end, though it's a bit hard to see because of the pattern of the money (made doing that extremely difficult on this piece, by the way)
    Black g-10 checkered bolt cover

    The right hand horizontal carry/cross draw sheath is sharkskin and lined with deerskin. Courtesy of my friend and master leather worker Claude Scott.

    All comments and discussion welcome. :)

    Your work is incredibly clean as usual, it looks Great! I'm not sure how I feel about the handle material, but it does look good. I guess I some what of a traditionalist when it comes to knife handles. I guess I'm finally starting to show my age......

    This is one of those knives that I would love to own and take hunting. Then I wouldn't want to use it, because it's so beautiful.

    I enjoy practical knives that have class.

    Thanks guys. I appreciate the responses.

    I think this is an interesting material. It's a good choice for a hunter, for those that want a durable and stable synthetic. The shades of green make for an almost digicam effect.

    It would be cool on folder scales, I think. Which might not be too far down the line.
