"American explorer" themed hunter set. Knife 1 WIP

Recommended Posts

I've been talking to some of you about a skinning knife I'll be making with a checkered handle.  It's part of a set themed around some of the great American explorers.  The first knife in the set, "The Clark," is a pretty straight forward drop-point hunter.  Here's the WIP.... and the obligatory injury photo.  More to come tomorrow.

So planning any others from North America than just folks from the USA?  (about to head to work in the United States of Mexico)

Since moving down this away I've been reading up on the spanish explorations and think they would make a great theme for a set of blades and of course the Canadians did a lot of exploring even in what is now the USA---fur trappers and the lost expeditions looking for the NW Passage.

I do hope you do one for a group of american explorers---our Astronauts!

Working on the polish tonight.  More pictures tomorrow. Feedback is welcome!

 hey, send me a list of ideas and I'll run with it!!  I think a Spanish explorer series would be a lot of fun, and an extraterrestrial set gives a lot of imaginative possibilities that could be really cool.
