    A friend of an ol'e classmate sent my wife and son a knife. Ulu knife is made from a round circular blade from and Alaskan Fish factory ship.. He said it would probably never need sharpening,as there made to cut hundreds of thousands of fish. I guess I'll test that theory. LOL
    For my son he made a bone knife,carved from the front leg of a whitetail deer. twords the tip he carved the mountan range he sees out his front window and the handle area, he carved a grizzly bear head. The big momma griz he says, likes to take a shortcut through his back yard .Now I just need to ship him a few deerbones for traid. I think thats a prety good deal..... if I do say so myself :)

    I do like that Ulu knife, I can see how that would be a real asset with BBQ. I am envious...........................

    Very cool presents. One of my shooting buddies gave me a WWII Kabar fighting knife for Christmas. Guess I better make that trick leather quiver with the dragon carving I promised him 3 months ago...before the bow shoot next weekend!;)

    Congrats. The Ulu knife is different but my favorite is the Bone Knife, mostly because it is hand carved.
    I'm sure that you will enjoy both.
    Thanks for sharing.

    In the letter he sent,he said it was a circular German steel knife blade . I'm guessing a disk knife about 12" diameter. Still waiting on the county to call me to pickup a "not to badly hit" roadkill deer to test it out on. But no calls since I got the knife. Lol

    cover I made for my wifes Ulu

    Made this for my wifes new Ulu Knife. Made it with whitetail deer leather and antler button to keep it closed. Not the best work, but it works.

    Hint.....(Duster) I like Dragons too! lol I do think they are cool though. I probably have 25-30 novels and books centered around dragons. I'm tellin' you, that is some very good artwork that you did!

    I skinned and butchered 6 deer last year with it. Still as sharp as when it arrived. I'm thinking on seeing how much he gets for them for Christmas gifts for a couple friends.
