The Gentleman's Choice

Hello All,
I just added a new model to my custom line. I'll just post the thumbnails here for time with links to the big pictures for those who have faster modems or don't mind waiting all day for a picture to come up!

This is called THE GENTLEMAN'S CHOICE. It is made from 1095, edge quenched. The 3.5" blade is hollow ground and mirror polished. The handle is satin finished aluminum with mother of pearl inlay. Torx screws assemble the handle and pearl to the knife making it easy to remove the handle to completely clean the knife. Overall length is 7.5".

Here are the links to the big pictures for those interested.

Any comments, suggestions, and criticism appreciated.

Nice work, Craig!

Looks like a lot of time went into that. It shows. Someone is going to be satisfied!

Very sleek. If only there were some gentlemen left to complement the knife

Off to browse the rest of Craig's knives before going to work....

That's a nice one, I like the construction method, the screws are a welcome change from pins. Gib

Thanks for the comments guys. This knife was a lot of fun to make. This is the first fixed blade I've made with screws attaching the handle, plus the first knife I've used my new Sherline mill to mill the inlay for the pearl. After 12 years making knives I finally broke down and bought a milling machine. Bes##es, since I am now a dealer for Sherline Tools, I figured I should at least own 1 of their machines!

Oh, and Coop, I'm the satisfied one. This knife stays home with me
