    Hello all, fresh from the shutter of Chuck Ward are my 2 most recent completed projects. I made some minor changes, slimmed down the guard on the elk model and changed the grind on the clips a little. Hope ya like them.

    Wow, excellent renditions. I like the antler-handled one best, and that's seldom the case.

    Hey Bob,
