More knives by Roger

This first one is made to be a working knife.  He bought one of those big rubber mats that are for horses to stand on a year or two ago.  I don't remember why.  Anyway, the handle is made from that material.
It went home with our nephew on Saturday.
The dollar is there to show the size of the knife/blade.  It is something most of us are familiar with.
This is his other finish...it reminds me of mine....in fact, I would not have minded keeping it either.  But I thought that might be a little selfish of me.
Those little groves in the tops of the blade is a place to place your thumb...kind of gives it a grip that won't slide off so easy.  And there is a term for the way the tip of the knife is done, and for the life of me I cannot remember what it is called.  And if you look at the first picture of this knife, there is a little place on the sharp side of the blade...a little grove if you will.  That is just for looks as far as a I know.  Some knives have it and others done.
The handle is from an antler...that slight curve feels very good in the hand.
Again, to give an idea of the size.  This one went home with my brother...the grandpa of Jackson.  Also he grew that 72 lb watermelon.

Roger's workmanship looks so precise! I like the shape of the handle and bet it feels good in the hand.

These are amazing, beautiful works of art and he is an artist. From such beauty to such ergonomics and functionally. I bet he could make lots of money making these blades. Many for sale are not nearly this awesome. How long does it take him to make one?

A fine selection of excellent knives. It was interesting to check out the special places you identified.

That is an impressive group of knives. I'm guessing the recipients were real happy with them. I also liked the material you took your photos on, which were great by the way :)

I can't even imagine how one goes about making a knife like those in the pictures. I love the handles on them, so unique.
