I made this one for fun. Damascus, musk ox horn, african blackwood and white spacer.

BWUAHAHAHA!!! I love this thing. Now i shouuld tell you guys that it is a mini, made from cut off scraps and is 2.5 inches in total length. I will soon have a full size version in the works. I had to post it, as it was so much fun to make :D

Love the handle. Musk ox horn. Great something else expensive to add to my list of wants.
Have you tested it on a garlic clove or chives.

Interesting concept. I could see buying a mini model of a knife as well as the bigger version just for fun! Very nice.

Is this a solid musk horn?

Looks interesting. People use it on western handles, so why not use it on wa.

Brontosaurus ribs like on the Flintstones.
Very cool little knife Mike.

HAHAHA!!! I was hoping it would be taken for the novelty that it is. I had thought about making a bunch of these, as they are just fun to do. I have a few more small pieces of scraps that i will whip a few more up and run a giveaway. I swear, try it...It is the most fun you can have with scrap materials. Maybe i can get the next one big enough to be a necker...we shall see. I have a little bit of the musk ox scraps left, and a few ivory scraps also.
I do want to say...it is fully forged to shape, heat treated and sharp as hell!

Thanks for looking guys :D

Dan Graves makes some amazing miniature daggers and they are always sold out. there is a market for them.

I agree about Dan's daggers....I have tried to snag a few, but they are always gone when i see them lol. Expect a batch of these this weekend :D

Is the blade 2.5" long or the whole thing?

Looks very well done. I may need one of these...

I want a whole set (petty, gyuto, cleaver) with matching handles in a little presentation box from Randy, or else a mini magnetic wall strip.

I bet your tattoo customers would like the miniatures as well.
Attach a jump ring and they can hang them from their piercings.

I'll get my nose pierced if you make a miniature double blade karambit.
