Hand made knife and sheath

I made these knives and double sheath from scratch.

The knives are from O-1 tool steel flat stock, some brass, ivory (faux), and myrtle wood.

Live long and prosper.

    Outstanding. I love the blade on the bottom. Dude you have a gift.

    P. S. Guys, I PM'd him asking him to start a thread of other projects, so he ain't bragging or anything. Just an FYI.

    Edit: Now where on earth did you get ivory?

    Hey skwirrel, I have a good friend that makes a darn good living making knives like these! look him up on the web.... Tim Ridge, Swampfox Knives....Based on what I see here, there is a "nicht" out there for you to fill! Also, you need to know about Crape Myrtle wood for handles!

    Beautiful work. If I could turn out a knife like that, I would brag about it.

    Skwirrel, that's some mighty fine work on those knives. What took you so long to start posting any questions/comments at all??? I saw your reloading question today and then realized that you've been a member since Aug. 2011!

    You sure don't post much..........

    I'm not even a knife person, but think those are really nicely done!

    Skwirrel, those are just gorgeous!

    If it isn't too much trouble, would you mind posting a picture of them in the sheath. That thing is really neat by the way.....never seen a double sheath before, but it does makes sense for something like dressing animals and such.

    Was it you that posted something about lurking and wanting to post but thought you saw others being attacked so you refrained from posting to avoid being attacked?

    I'd like to see that too. I showed the wife his pics of ka-nives since she bought me ka-nives for Christmas and I made the comment that those sheaves looked like what a butcher might keep his tools of the trade in his abattoir. On his belt I mean, 'cause as much as I like and admire those, they would not work for me in the field.

    Great looking knives, but, where is the Skwirrel image on the sheath?

    very nice work. I hobby build knives when I have time, and that simply blows my work away.
