Nice work!
I'm constantly Browsing Knife Maker Websites, just never have invested.
So many things are more common place now than 20+ years ago [strike that, more like 33 year ago and then some!] when I began collecting.
You can get just about any material, blades of all types, designs, Rockwell hardness, Damascus, layered Japanese blades like Cold Steels San Mai III or similar, the scales available are endless,...
It's a real shame I have to part with what I have now, but maybe once I sell and/or trade what I have on hand I'll invest in just one st of materials to make myself something unique.
It's always less painless when getting at least one new item when having to part with something you've treasured for decades, kinda takes the "sting" out just a bit.

Very very nice work my man.

How did you make them? Buy the blade/frame & work up your own bolsters & scales or??

Bought the blades and frames. I trust others more than myself on things like blades and locking mechanisms. I made the scales and bolsters.

I keep telling myself that I'm set with a multitool, stockman, and Swiss Army knife. Then you go and post pics like these...
