Swingman may have posted a hand made knife that Mark, his SIL, made for him while on this visit using Mark's um er uh Swingman's shop. ;~)
Anyway, as a BD gift, Mark presented me with my own knife. I was honored to have received this surprise.
Moments after receiving.
The whole knife is 6.5" long. The mesquite was pulled out of a small batch of pre chopped fire wood.
Two days later another friend/neighbor took the knife and returned it a week later. ;~)
A prized treasure for which I am honored to own.
Thank you Swingman for subletting your shop. ;~) Thank you Craig for the carving.
