Looking good, it's nice to see a 'real' knife. Love the temper line.

Ron, is that a hole in the handle behind the spacer? If so, what is the reason for having it there rather than near the butt?

lol..yup it`s a hole....I`m still waiting for materials for the mosaic pin that will go in there. We need a real knife supplier in this stinkin city, all these guys carry is diamond wood, stainless steels (440 & ats-34) and brass! man you can`t get anything square tube copper or nickel silver it almost sucks to try to make different knives in Saskatchewan ( my province )

Ron,

It's no better in Edmonton. I just order everythng from the states. For what it's worth, Barry Posner gets mill runs of NS pin stock to meet the tolerances he needs to make his mosaic pins. I just buy from Barry, or the suppliers who sell his pins (ie, most of them).

I used to live in Saskabush myself. I'm from Outlook, and my wife is from Bruno.

Like Bob said, you have a good eye. Very pleasing shapes and materials. I like your work. Nice touch with that mosaic pin. I'll bet that handle is a pleasure to hold. Thanks.
