    We are putting out some very fine custom knives.
    Mostly in these three styles:

    4 1/2" blade Hunter:
    6 - 8 3/8" Bowies:
    3 1/2" Bird Knife:

    We are in the process of Being able to produce pictures of them for the pc. (as we build our website), But we do have some very good color photo's for those "truly interested."


    The Choya ( Choy-Ya ) cactus, has inside, a very beautiful honeycombed wood, (full of holes you can see through), and is hard as nails.

    When the 'meat' of the cactus is eaten by the havelinas, or just naturally rots off, the wood is left standing, or on the ground. We take this through a process, that allows us to mount the blade and brass guard, with a very strong, life long filler inside. As the filler is drying, we counter sink it down into the holes in the handle, (natural holes), and black stain is shadowed 'down in the holes'... the outside wood, after many hand sandings, is then hand rubbed again, with many coats os tung oil, and a western style concho is placed as the butt cap. The outside wood looks like a buckskin, to honey color.

    If anyone is interested, please PM me, and i will send a photo and price.

    Sorry we do not have a way to place the pics on here yet.. it is coming soon, as we try and build a website.
