This is a one off knife I've made. Its a Gaucho knife, which, like most everything I know about knives, I learned here. I'm going to donate 1/2 of the proceeds from the sale of this knife to Steve for Ram. It'll go on sale in the Makers for Sale section later this week for $200 shipped. I'll have to make a sheath for it later this week also.

Gaucho Knife! 3/16" thick 01 steel, 13" OAL, 8" Blade, Ironwood handle with red and black spacers.

Gorgeous knife Andy! Love the shape.
Steve

The shape isn't mine, as you know. LOL. I think it may have been you that caused my first Gaucho search. You or Sarge one.

We can now add Andy too the list of "Another one we knew when...":thumbup: :cool: :D
And Andy makes two, that I know of, sorry if I'm overlooking anyone...

I wonder how many more knifemakers there will be springing from the HI Forum in the next five years? :eek: :thumbup: :cool: :D

You sir, can say much more than that. You and Steve and Sarge had a big part in shaping my craftsmanship!

Thank You!

You make the best knives around, Fiddleback. I've yet to see anyone else able to combine elegance and simplicity like you do.

I appreciate your compliment bro, and please join in at my forum. I'm going to start a gaggle of new Passarounds soon!

But really, there are certainly a lot of makers that out skill me by a long shot. I consider myself a newb, and most makers at BF are more skillful than I am.

I fill a niche, and make user knives. I convex. I don't do ricasso's, or choils, or thin squre handles. If thats your bag, then I'm your maker.

Andy's logo doesn't scare me any... Actually Andy and me had a talk about his icon/logo quite some time ago and I told him what I thought it looked like to me. :eek: ;) :cool: :D
All I'm gonna say about it is my opinion really gave Andy a fit of LOLOL/ROFLMAO!!! :thumbup: :eek: :D

Actually I forgot to say anything about Andy's rendition of a Gaucho Knife... But in reality I can't add anything to what's already been said about it, except to say I really like Andy's artistic license he used on the handle and --- Me Likey!!!:thumbup: :D
The handle on my CANEJO is small, round, and straight...
And it rusts one helluva lot worse than 0-1 ever thought about rusting!!! ;)
