I thought it might be fun for all you knife makers to show us the single knife you are most proud of.

I would think you can be a knife maker, and not a knife seller. Nice knife bud. Love the blade shape

Can't actually say it's one that I'm most proud of but it makes the top 10 I'd say.

Damascus skinner with Mammoth Ivory scales.

This certainly not my best; I've made some pretty custom knives for customers, but this is my model 104 that I make with various handles, my favorite EDC I make. I sold over 100 Model 104's last year, this and my Montana Skinner are two of my better selling models.

I've got several fixed blades I liked. Here's probably my two favorite folding knives, hard to pick a single favorite.
