Great job Mark!
I'm making a patch knife.
Scales are handcarved and the blade is a blank but "shaped".
It's on FB

One I made.
The tine fits the hand perfectly in the curve and the fork was just screaming to be shaped into a finger guard.
This is one of the most comfortable knives I have ever made.

the arrow head is an all purpose knife (when with my archery kit it's on an arrow the handle is in my bag, till gutting time) with flinter it's a patch knife, as is the straight razer. the secret is the arrow head is put into the antler with an insert(hot melt glued and turned to desired angle) that way it can be unscrewed and placed on an arrow or replaced as needed
