Your dirk looks very nice, Thomas.

That's looks pretty good! Would you happen to have a good shot of the entire piece?

Thanks, Henrik

Wink Challenge or purchase order? Wink
I have a personal preference for shorter blades on dirks of the 45, though I`ve made longer ones for earlier pieces.
The McClain-dirk you showed to us in the other post is a wonderful piece. Im really impressed, especially the leatherworks are amazing.

Cheers
Thomas

For now it's just a challenge... Wink

Aye, that McClain dirk is stunning, but I'm sorry to say I'm not sure who's the lucky owner. It was sold on ebay some time ago...

I saw a whinger by him on ebay this spring, I think. It was also a lovely piece!

Cheers,
Henrik

Constant and true.
