    Beautiful work! I had to open the page in Chrome though. Firefox wouldn't show your images. Don't know why.
    I'm also curious about the top section on your first knife. It looks like peened brass? I haven't seen it done that way before

    The strip is bronze, it is peened like that because that is how the original maker did it and I was trying to emulate that.

    The pics are hosted on BF, if you are not signed in you wont be able to see the pics.

    Thanks all

    Nice builds! The overall simplicity of that camp knife just lets that rams horn scream though, that’s pure awesome.

    What did you do to the Ruana knife? I don't see Ruanas stamp. Did you copy it?
