    I love the blade profile on this one, what a cool knife!



    The best thing about Lloyd's in my opinion is the amazing variety of materials.. blades.. sizes.. that he crafts. Your bottom picture alone is incredible



    See what I mean about Lloyds? Yours are really nice =) And Andy Fannin just nails zulus. I love his work

    I love that cross shield, so beautiful!

    Amazing jigging on that treasure Charlie =)

    4 that I have not posted yet

    Dr. T Dino in mammoth. When I bought this from the dealer I knew it would be great cause Dr. T puts out an excellent product.. but his pictures did not do the mammoth justice. In hand in natural light this thing shines like something from a Tolkien novel..

    And my newest... I have resisted micarta in favor of natural scales for years... but you all have been wearing me down across the threads on BF so I grabbed this off the exchange a couple days ago and so glad I did.
    Wiseman sowbelly in od green. 3.5 inch closed, perfection in the fit and finish department. Smooth as butter.

    Awesome quartet there Drew! If I'd have had the money at the time I would have been all over the Wiseman. Nice score there! The Dr. T is mesmerizing for sure!

    Four for Four Drew. That's a grand slam. Each one is deserving of special mention. But @Signalprick is right, there's something about that Wiseman.

    Thank you! I feel very lucky to own it =)

    Very kind of you =) Its been in my pocket since I got it. Really ending up liking the micarta... however shortly after I posted I dropped it! On hard surface and put a decent chip/scuff up by the pivot... was so mad at myself. I guess on one hand it makes it easy for me to consider it a user now... which is great... but with Micarta not sure if I need to worry about it getting worse and peeling?

    Ouch! It definitely shouldn't chip or peel. If it's too bad it could be lightly sanded with high grit paper to kinda smooth it out. It'll make a great user for sure now!

    I was wondering about the sand paper option, thank you

    That knife is special, the sea shell shield representing where you live is really cool too

    My only custom. Lannier Spring Heeled Jack with El Greco’s View of Toledo. I’m surprised more makers don’t do art knives with resins or acrylics. Rare covers are beautiful (like that cross cut mammoth!) but newer materials are so versatile. Have y’all seen the knives with watch parts imbedded in resin (Tom Fleury was the first to do so, I think)? Combining knives and other hobbies in one is great, in my opinion.
