Still loving that Gasconade of yours, Iz. That is one peachy looking blade you made there brother.

Those scale colors are one of those things I’d usually never pick for myself, but when I see them they start to make me think that though black goes with everything, it’s okay to be a little adventurous sometimes. We’re Hardwoodsman, not interior decorators. :D

I like that a lot sir. Well done. I dig it. :thumbup:

I even made a matching firesteel so I could be one of the cool kids.

Sooo.... Um.... Isn't that like buying the biggest calculator in math class so you can be the king of numbers? :D (Of course, I know what this feels like so who am I to poke too much fun.... :rolleyes:) I like that a lot too, dude. Well done, all around.

Joel,
At least it's not like one of those wrist watch calculators that all of the brainiacs had when I was in school. heh.
Those were very, very uncool.

A model 1906 with brown g10 scales, 1/8" orange spacers and brown g10 pins.
For some reason the front and back pins cracked on this one.

Wow, Iz,

What a great looking batch of knives. What are the specs on that Mini-Gasconade?

This is the re-designed model #5 Turley Branch. The hidden tang scagel style wasn't very popular so I figured I'd change the model. The new one has a wilson's creek handle with a blade that is a mix between a green river skinner and a scagel style.
This one has osage orange scales and 1/8" black spacers. Black micarta pins

The "special" in the batch is this Model 1220. It's got bone g10 scales, 1/8" orange spacers, brown g10 pins and a faint rough hammon line.

Glad you dig it, bro. I think it's some of the prettiest stabilized woods I've seen.
It should be getting to you before long.
Thanks again, man!

If I squint really hard, I can see my knife in this pic. And it makes me happy in pants....
