    Here's another hunter showing my increasing love for the "clay quenched" blade. This is a straight worker, no frills just nice and clean. I hope you like it.
    J.

    This 12" long trailing point knife has a blade of clay-quenched 1095 high carbon steel with a 5 3/4" cutting edge, a hand-rubbed finish and distinctive hamon line. The guard is nickle-silver. The handle itself is Bacote wood with a stainless steel pin. The knife comes with a border tooled leather blade sheath, by Tess.
    Price, with leather sheath: $275.00, plus shipping.

    Visa, MasterCard & Paypal are all fine and your satisfaction is always guaranteed.

    J,

    That is one Beautiful Knife.

    I have no idea how you can make that at that price.

    My Semi-Production knives are in the Same Price Range.

    That is a True Bargin.

    The lines are elegant and you can tell --just by looking at it--it will be an awesome performer.

    Great Work.

    I agree with Mike...TOO nice for that price! I'd never be able to use it for fear of making a mess of it:spin:

    Matches,

    I would use the heck out of it if I owned it.

    That knife screams out to be used on a Hunting Trip.

    I love the Sleek Lines of it.

    Yeah, I know...I'm just one of those odd balls that enjoys "that new knife look." I have enough other knives I can beat on:jdevil:

    Did I mention that I use a LOT of Bocote ?

    I like it's subtle Contrasts.

    Looks Outdoorsy without being too flashy.

    I'm also a Very Big Fan of Good Size Choils.

    Damn....that is a sweet looking knife. And of course the sheath just kicks ass (I'm biased towards excellent sheathmakers. :jdwink: )

    Thanks Guys. I love these clay-quenched 10XX blades. I'm making one for myself now, pretty much the same a above but, with a stubby clip-point blade. I usually carry my knife in my back pocket (never been a belt wearing kinda guy) so the trailing point would be a tad too long for that.

    Though this is a simple piece, it's a beauty. This was one of my warm up knives previous to starting my Journeyman Smith test knives. She's about as clean a work as I can do.

    As to the price...you can only make so many $1000.00 knives and hope to make a living. Plus, I like diversity. Ya gotta make knives for every price range and most folks will use something like this one as opposed to just displaying it, not that there's anything wrong with that if it's your thing.
    :jdwink2:

    Thanks again,
    J.

    I went to his site and looked , you all should too.

    A lot of very nice knives at really good prices.

    I like the toast cutter---very cool and funny.

    The sheaths are "unbeleavible?" Very nice work. Colors--layers--workmanship.

    Very nice all. 2 Devils up:ernie:
