Finished up the sheath and display stand for my hunting knife. The stand is antler and Canary wood with a Tru Oil finish.

Purdy, Dan. The simplicity of the stand and rack go well together, letting the wood grain in the handle and stand speak for themselves.

Booting the ironing board out of my shop today. I got one pic, but because it is upside down, I have to wait until my wife helps me flip it and move it. Very ungainly beast.

Thanks, the whole thing is about 10 1/2” and the blade is about 5 3/4” I never measure when making these things, so size is aproximite

Very nice…. one of the coolest I’ve seen yet.

What’s the story on the Damascus steel?

Hi Matt, This was a couple billets I made a while back. I haven’t made any in a while but hope to get started again real soon. I make my Damascus out of whatever scraps I can find.

That is a sharp project ….. pun intended!
My wife has been after me to make her some custom knives, i think she got the idea from a TV show; I wish I knew what she is planning!
The antler is definitely a nice touch?
Was the antler difficult to work?

Not at all Oldnovice, I drilled couple small holes through it and used my dremel to grind out the shape and size of the knife tang.
