    Following up on my previous post testing the distressed leather concept, finished the real thing.
    Knife by www.ripcustomknives.com.
    Looking to compliment the rustic nature of the bear jaw handle, I think it worked out O.K.
    Stitched with artificial sinew the stitch style required 31 feet of sinew to complete. Basically 24" of sinew for every 1" of stitch length.
    I digitize the knife blade on all my custom projects to ensure an exact fit.
    This one will be on display at the Atlanta Knife Show in June.

    Oh man, that's too cool for school. It also kind of creeps me out a little. : )

    The knife is definitely "different" and incredibly comfortable to hold. The jaws work perfectly as as a handle.

    Sure is. I afraid my leather work is playing second fiddle to the knife on this one.
