And Randy always has amazing handle material just hanging around.

    The blade size is loosely based upon Son's dragon slayer slicer. The profile is a little different, but during his pass around, I was intrigued by how nimble a thin slicer in the 210mm range was.

    I'm thinking of getting a snakeskin sheath for it next.

    Snake skin or croc sheath sounds awesome!

    Thank you K. for the opportunity to work with a unique and awesome new material. This was a fun project!!!

    I thought I recognized that profile, It is base off an antique Eskiltuna slicer I had. I have always used it as my charcuterie ( sausage) knife.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    I don't post comments like this often, That's one of the best looking knives I've ever seen.

    That too is also Awesome!
    Might I suggest using it as a inlay rather then as the structural leather itself. Even if you do a blind inlay so that it looks like it's made only from the alligator skin.

    Just as a follow up to Colin's comment -- if I understood it correctly. These were a few sheaths that might be some gator inspiration.

    The top sheath is awesome. There all nice. But the detail and subtle curves and shape of the top one makes it my favorite.
