For the manner in which men live is so different from the way in which they ought to live, that he who leaves the common course for that which he ought to follow will find that it leads him to ruin rather than safety.

New Pair of Knives

This is the latest pair of "Outdoor" knives that I've made. That name comes from a general lack of anything to call them. They are about 6" long with 2 3/4" blades.

I really like this shape.

Bubinga handles with brass/SS Loveless fasteners and a brass lanyard tube.

There are thin brass liners under the wood scales. A decorative touch.

Look close and you'll see the masking tape still on the blade. Anyway, I really like how woods like bubinga look after they soak up some oil and get a coat or two of shellac.

Blue and black G10 handles with stainless/nickel Loveless fasteners and a stainless lanyard tube.

Detail of the black liners.

I love that the same design can be represented in two very different fashions. One, quite modern, the other is more classic.
