Thats a beautiful knife Craig, were you not satisfied with your old pics? If so, what did you change? Those pics are great!

Thank you everyone. I made this one for the show in Kansas City two years ago.

Craig i have been an admirer of your work for some years. It was on BF that i was seeing your knives but i have never seen one available; i.e. when someone has a C.Brewer knife, they don't sell it.
Your LB Whittler looks every bit as fine as a Tony Bose example of this difficult to make pattern. This puts you at the very top of the knife makers who make traditional pattern knives.

How did I miss this? What a beauty! I am impressed with your fit of the shield in the stag, it can be tough to set those well without it looking clunky. Guess it has as much to do with the stag itself that's used.

Beautiful work!

I missed it too Glenn!
That is beautiful! From the picture the fit and finish appears impeccable! Cutting the back of stag to fit the bolsters is always much more difficult than sending off the top for the stag. Very nice and precise work.

There is only one thing I miss on that knife is brass liners.
To my personal taste brass always adds some warmth to a knife, especially with stag handles.

Your outstanding execution of the design and your flawless F/F makes up for the missing brass, to me.
Excellent work, thanks for sharing! ::tu::
