    I had a customer ask me to make him a set of matched Stag hunters for himself and his son to take to Alaska hunting!
    Here's what I came up with -
    Forged 5160 with differential heat treatment.
    Nickel Silver hardware.
    Premium Sambar Stag handle material.
    Full take-down configuration.
    (Do you think if I made him two more he'd take me with him?)

    Probably won't start either!
    I stay away from "Tourist Trap" stuff.
    I'm sure there's a place for all kinds of things in this world, I'll just let somebode else make it.

    I will admit, one thing I have considered making is what are call "patch knives". Smaller knives that could be litterally worn around your neck.
    Use by traditional muzzled loader shooters, (of which I am one).
    These are small knives used to trim the patch after the ball has been started in the barrel.
    Normally, antler points are used for the handle, and it seems I'm getting quite a collection after using the large part of the tine for handle material.
    I'm gonna have to find something to do with the points!
