Default A knife for a friend for Father's day.

A good friend of my wife's asked me to make her father a knife for Father's day. I normally only make them to give away and I never make them upon request, but I made an exception for her. Last summer she was with us on Lake Livingston when my boat sank and she almost drown, so I figured I owed her one.

1095 steel


Bodark handle

Still need to heat treat, polish and epoxy the scales on but it's looking good so far.
