It must be a Canadian thing (pine cones) my vote is for the second one also. You did a great job on these good start to the new year More pic please

Both are gorgeous! How hard is the pine cone material to work with as compared to other materials like stabilized wood and non-stabilized oily wood such as cocobolo and Honduran rosewood?

Both look great... like the 2nd one best....I have a thing for black and red, plus love the file work.

Outstanding looking knives and sheaths. Love the simplicity of the 1st knife, but can't stop checking out that 2nd one with the "stabilized pine cone" handles and the other details. Thanks for sharing.

That stabilized pine cone is awesome!! It looks like some kind of prehistoric fossil.

The buffalo horn is a timeless classic.

Beautiful work as always.

Either one would look good on my belt or shelf. The horn would make the belt but I don't think I could get the pine cone that far. Now if you just sold your knives...
