    Made some progress on the sheaths, got them all sewn, just have to let the dye dry and set the snaps in place then put the final finish on and then should be good to go.

    Got the strap snaps on today still have to give the sheaths a once over to make sure earthing is completely and evenly dyed. Then put on the final Snow seal finish which is essentially Bee's wax, then buff with a clean cloth and they're good to go. Oh, forgot last thing to do is sharpen them, I'd hate to forget that.lol

    I'll have some better pics when they're ready to ship to the customer.

    Those are stunning. Much like the one here in my hand.
    You have no idea how proud I am to have a few of your blades.

    Here they are all done, with a few better pics. The customer got them already and is really pleased. He chose the
    Elk for him self and will be giving the other 3 to his 3 sons for Christmas this year. My favorite is probably the Elk also but for this year the Eagle is a pretty close second. These are a few of the final photos including a customer provided photo of the finished knives.

    That's an epic set Scott! I like how each one is unique, not just the pins but the stag as well, beautiful work.

    Thanks guys, although they still have a soldered guard, these are actually pretty fun to build, there are only about 13 or so spacers per handle so there not too terribly labor intensive like some of my other patterns over 30 spacers.lol. This is one of my favorite Randal handle patterns and is fast catching up to the first Randall made in orders now since I recently posted it on Facebook.
