    Nice work! Are you doing both the knifemaking and leatherwork yourself?

    Yeah Jon,
    I made the knives and handles with the sheaths. The knives are made out of a set of pruners and if you look close you can see they are actually a of set of blades from the pruners. I keep a close watch for good steel in which I think will make a good knife. I have several unusual knives I have made out of different tools that were used for other purposes. As for the leather work I could not find anyone around my neck of the woods to make sheaths for some of my knives and guns so went on the internet a couple of years ago and started learning how to do leather work myself. What great lessons I have learned since I started. Now that I have learned how to post my pictures I will be posting some more of my handy work. I am just an olegeezer 72 years young and learning something everyday.
