Yes, everything I build is of full-tang construction. Nothing else is comparable durability-wise. If your talking about the Bowie that's at the top of the group picture, it's $60.00 without a sheath, $75.00 with a sheath. If you're talking about the red scaled knife with the blood groove-that's $95.00 without a sheath, $110.00 with a sheath. I'm going to be builkding a whole series of 1095 HC steel Tom Brown Tracker type knives soon, I consider that to be the ultimate all around fixed blade knife: Combat, survival, utility-does it all.

It's American 440c Stainless, with a low reflective satin finish. Don't buy Chinese stainless, it's junk.

I make a lot of damascus blades. There's an outfit in Alabama called Alabama Damascus that makes very good blade blanks. It can be harder to sharpen than stainless or HC, but it holds a good edge when sharpened.

Here's 3 more that I just finished last night. Top is my standard damascus hunting knife, with pistachio scales. Middle is a mini-kukri, 440c stainless, with Australian redgum scales. Bottom is a damascus clip point, with burl ash scales.

Really nice work, this is right up my alley, I collect Victorinox and leathermans and some other knives that I like. Do you put any type of finish on the scales ? Hard to tell from the pictures . Also can we custom order the scales ? I like the bottom one in the last pic as a last ditch knife. Looks like it could be drawn like a pistol. Would be interested in that with a sheath if it can be drawn fast. Kind of like the ka bar, Glad you are on this site, need a knife expert. I will send a pic of the ka bar but I am sure you know what I am talking about.
