    I ask because we just got a Christmas gift that was one of those along with an item that is a handled piece of skinny flat metal slightly bent towards the end and a bowl with thin cloth on it. We had no idea what it was. It's a Danish sourdough bread making kit.

    Finished a couple sheaths for a couple knives I’d made before Christmas. First time using water Buffalo and Chicago screws. What do you guys think?

    Thank you! My wife, kids and I came up with the name Mythical Beast Forge and both of those are prototypes for my model called the Siren. I ended up making the new version with a little more narrow and recurved blade.

    Just finished 2 of the 3, now I have to make sheaths. The knife with natural micarta is almost identical to the pass around blades. The only difference is the stock thickness and it will have a black scale on one side.
