PICTURED KNIFE SPECS:

Last weekend I was out on a hike with the neighbors and a slew of children and dogs. We did a 4 mile loop around the mountain that our home sits a top of and ended the day eating dinner on the back deck under sunny skies on a beautiful Montana fall afternoon.  The kids handed me a jaw bone the dogs had found and I joked that I would make a knife out of it.  So I did, and its truly one of the coolest knives I have made in a long time.  I had to re-anchor the teeth with several treatments of crack filling super glue, then I sanded the sharp teeth edges down and gingerly machined a pocket in the jaw for the tang to slide into. I set the grip on a 4" Alaskan style blade with a unique clip, finger choil, and razor sharp edge.  I textured the brass guard sort like the way I do brass backs, and went with a sinew wrapped bolster saturated in glue to keep it in place. I pinned jaw with brass and left the hammer marks. The overall length is 8 3/4" and comes in a handmade leather sheath. This jawbone handle is the first of it's kind that I've ever produced, and I think it's easily one of the coolest knives I've made in a while. Thank, James.
