A custom knife I call the Gunslinger, I casted the knife scales from maple burl with aluminum honeycomb and epoxy tinted with mica pigment. Specifications in picture. Plus I got a nice fat pen blank out of the casting .

Super nice knife and scales – don’t you have to have a forge for the layered process ?

I didn’t actually forge it, I bought the billet in the second picture and took it to my buddies metal shop, I’ll get 3 knives out of it, He has all the cutting tools and CNC machines to make the knife blanks. I casted the scales myself of course.

Excellent knife Mike. I like the aluminum honeycomb, gives off a alligator effect. Nice handle design too.
