    Haven't posted any work in a while. Here's one I'm almost done with. Nitro-v, g-10, stabilized burl. It's a donation to be auctioned off to support an orphanage in Namibia. 20190321_114840.jpg 20190321_114829.jpg

    So I stole one out of the last batch as a personal EDC. A Ruger Vaquero with one of my Vaquero models. AEB-L @ 63 (ht by Peters), copper bolster and camel bone handle:

    While the Ruger and the Browning 1895 are mine, the leatherwork ships out today, as I finished it off yesterday:

    Five or six more leather projects and then back to another batch of knives.

    "Nutmeg Maze" by Unique Micarta

    Steel is CPM 4V at 65rc
    That 400grit hand satin finish was brutal

    Rocking a 12dps 800 grit resin diamond edge and is 0.007" at the shoulder.

    Very slicey.

    Lol, that looks beautiful! Did “Henry” make that one? How is the action. I’m slowly looking for a Golden or other replica. I’m .44LC or .44 mag. Your thoughts on that Rifle?

    Here's a little 8" EDC with Wenge/White Maple/Chechem Scales. Scales are reinforced with two threaded rods per side. In the first pic it's still loose but I had the very slender strips from bandsaw profiling along the spine side and I though to test the strength of the epoxy. The top one is .045" and the bottom one is only .015". I put quite a bit of force on both and was REALLY surprised how much they bent without breaking! Eventually the thinner one gave way but not at the joint!

    Let me know what you guys think I value all opinions.

    Grinding CPM 15v at 64rc with a 60grit belt.

    The bevel would get rust between switch sides and keeping cool with water

    I got it very thin, it has a nice CBN Waterstone edge on it.
