    Hi,

    This is a wild criollo knife I just finished for a local customer.

    I'm not too keen on the bended stag, but it's exactly the way the customer wanted it, and that's what's important, right? :)

    Overall length is 14" and blade length is 8.5"
    Antelope stag fon handle and fitting in nickel silver.


    Some pictures of the progress:

    The damascus pattern sure looks nice. Do you do your own? I am assuming you do. Do you ever blue it?

    I agree about that particular handle, wouldn't have been my first choice either.

    Another beauty! I think that handle fits that knife fine.

    Ruben the posts you do here are great. Thanks

    I would never thought of that handle either. I wish I was
    more of a artist.

    I don't forge yet, so I get my damascus from other makers that do forge. I don't believe I ever blued a damascus blade, but it wouldn't be a problem if someone would want that, as I did blued other blades :)

    Regards,

    Ruben
