Gentleman Hunter 9 1/4"

Ok guys here's my first picture post. This one is 1095. It is my first satin finish and my first dovetailed handle scales. Handles are indonesian mahogany and zebrawood.

A very good looking knife. You did a real good job on the file work. The next time that you try that you might try something for the bolster that doesn't compete with the pattern of the handle scales, maybe a wood that has almost zero grain like African Blackwood or a synthetic.

I like the synthetic idea, I was actually considering that. Next time it will be so. Thank you sir.

I really like the wood bolster! I like the small contrast between the handle and bolster.
