Default Knife For Army Son

My oldest has graduated Army flight school and will soon be going to South Korea. To honor his hard work and dedication I made him a knife. I hope he likes it. We sure are proud of him!!

Heat treat by TKMS
Canvas Micarta
Carbon fiber pins

Very nice knife for a gift and I wish him safety and God speed in his service.

I did not know the scripture in Psalm 139 and had to look it up

Psalm 139
9 If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,

10 even there your hand shall blead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.

What aircraft? He'll like south Korea if he is single. They still do a lot of real flying there not just training flights.

He has selected the Dash 7. He will be finishing up fixed wing training in the next few days. He'll train a month in Canada and a month in El Paso then go to Korea after that.

Thanks for the kind words. It was a fun build.

I would think your son would be extremely honored to carry that keepsake. As I am honored he would sacrifice himself for our freedom. Best of wishes to you and your son!
Killer job on that knife, superb and a brilliant gesture!
