Oh man... those are both REAL BEAUTIES!

Excellent job and real artistry in the execution! I LOVE the look of stag!

That color stag is unique and pretty!

I have some stags but not like this.

Had to shave it more than I wanted to, but you can only do what the material will let you do when working with stag. Still thought they turned out nice and well matched

Thanks for the comments everyone ::tu::

Beautiful stag and terrific workmanship. Those look great.

MM looks like the stag was made for those knives. Longhorns always attract me for the name if nothing else. And that one is the best looking one I have ever seen. Lovely. ::handshake::

That is excellent work Kaleb! ::tu::
The statement you made, "You can only do what the material will let you do when working with stag," is more truth than many people realize.
It takes practice and skill to accentuate the best features of the stag and minimize the lesser features. You did well! ::nod::

Super looking knives Muskrat Man. I particularly like the Texas Lockhorn.
