You amaze me sometimes by how you can make simple and rustic look so elegant and beautiful. Great looking blade.

Thanks guys. I don't make too many full tangs anymore.......I don't like how the handle material tends to shrink and leave the sharp edges of the tang sticking up.
So, I fully finished the tang on this one, and rounded it over slightly, and then made the antler slabs just a tiny bit narrower than the tang.

Matt......sometimes less is more [campfire]

That's a good looking belt knife! Good call on the tang.

Thanks guys.
This is about as basic and simple a knife as I ever make, but it would do a lot of things well. Maybe one like this is needed for the St. Judes auction as it has attracted a lot of attention with the TG crew!

That's a great looking knife, Darcy! I really like the way you combine materials, textures and colors. Awesome job!
