Small Hunter, O1 With Cocobolo

Here's one I just finished. Its stock removal, blade is 1/8" O1, handle is cocobolo with mosaic pins. Did a simple pouch sheath with an antique saddle tan finish. Can't remember exact specs, blade is around 3 inches and about 7.5" overall length.

Nice! You could do a lot of good work with a knife like that. Simply, purposeful, and plenty more than handsome!

That's very nice. I've been looking to get a nice general purpose knife and this fits the bill. I bet you could sell a lot of these if you were so inclined.
RIP Loui Awerbuck. I will truly miss your insight, openness, humility, and training. The world is diminished by your passing.

Fantastic craftsmanship.
I love the lettering. Got to learn that skill.

Very nice, I love O1 and how sharp it gets. I like the handle shaping too!

Thanks for looking and all the nice comments guys. I used to make a lot of knives and burned out at it. Started just making the odd knife here and there, then I got into leatherwork and somehow that brought me back around to making knives. For the leatherwork I've mainly been doing repairs and customizing saddles, knife sheaths are alot different. Going to have to get a few more under my belt to get where I want to be.

Everyone else hit on what I was going to specifically mention.

I also rather like that initial and horse shoe shield on the saddle skirt.

Makes me wonder how silly a bit of embrodary stuck on a nylon light weight saddle might look.

Thanks guys

Only way to find out is to try it. That particular saddle I did the shield on is my girlfriends training saddle. She bought one, and one of her clients ordered one shortly after. She got hers about 3 weeks before the clients, and then 2 days after the client's was delivered they were both stolen overnight. That saddle maker doesn't put serial numbers on their roughout training saddles so there was no way to identify the stolen saddles. I took care of that on her replacement
