A couple recent recovers

Postby glennbad » Sat Jan 26, 2019 2:34 am

I did a large GAW, and part of that was the winners got to choose the knife and what I would do to them. Here are the first 2 knives of the 4 I am doing.

The first one is a Kutmaster stockman. The winner wanted this hunter green jigged bone and a shield.

The next one is this neat Schrade Walden with a Keen Kutter etch. I used a blue jigged bone and a shield.

Gorgeous! Is it a different bur...that created the texture, in the depth of the jigging...on the green one? The blue jigging looks smooth. Any chance you could show a picture of the two different burs or disks, you used to create them?

Thanks. I don't do my own dye-ing and jigging at this point, I get all my bone from Culpepper's. They do a great job, which leaves me more time to work on other things

Excellent, those handles sure bring new life into those old knives. Nice colors and shields for those patterns too. ::tu::

Classic good good lookin' re-handles! ::tu::
I'm rather partial to that blue with the American Standard jigging. ::nod::

They both look GREAT, but I am partial to the blue one which is -------spectacular.
