I work with 11 different cuts of wood, the most popular being Eastern Red Cedar and Black Walnut. Each knife is distinctly unique with changing wood color and grain. Handles and sheaths are matching grain from same stock. Because of carefully selected and measured patterns, rivets are hidden internally assuring the integrity of the handle and unique external patterns. 21 steps are taken to complete each knife which includes 5 coats of finish; each coat dried, and buffed.
