    I made the skinning sets[​IMG] using buffalo hide and vintage knives.

    Loving your interpretations Richard. Did you do the beading on that pouch as well?

    Those are a pair of original Native American beaded gauntlets. The Sharps is original as well.

    Maine. The real Maine. Not that southern part.
    Very cool. The whole setup has a nice "flavor" to it.

    Now I see the gauntlets, Richard. Some days are better than others after the cataract surgeries ...

    How are those "original"? How did you come about having them as original?
    Recent reservation purchase?

    Can't see the knives. How did you make the slots in the knife block? I want to make a knife block but that step has me bumfuzzled.

    Slots are not really "slots"...the block is laminated with several differnt pieces glued together to make one solid block with "slots" for knives. The slots are built in as the blocks are glued together..
