Here's a quick photo of a couple of knives that are being wrapped up and will go in the mail in time to go underneath a tree. Handles are high contrast Desert Ironwood, blades are CPM154. The knife on the left is my Semi-Skinner. The one on the right is my Drop Point Hunter.

Thanks for looking,
Lee

The desert ironwood is one of the nicest of handle woods and those two are a very good reason why.

I MAY have to order one of those, Lee? I used your semi-skinner model on an Axis deer in Sept. in TX, deboning it @ the ranch. Worked great and kept it's edge / MOST importantly.

Then, late in November, I had to use it again on an IL whitetail. Even after cutting it up, the edge was still was feeling good - after all that time & effort on my part - and the Baumgart knife...!

Good materials and a good craftsman add up to a quality knife. One can do no better / I know!

Thanks Lee! Keep up the fine work.

Merry Christmas to all on AR...!

Lee, that’s as fine as looking Desert Ironeood as I’ve seen. To any considering buying one of his knives, I own one and can attest as to the quality. I have the semi-skinner and it balances perfectly in the hand.

It’s kind of the golden age of knives. Even a lot of factory knives are damn good, but after years of fiddling with knives, I have to say: Lee’s knives are the equal of some of the best. I think this is particularly true in that he puts a guard on his knives: An additional step that takes real skill to execute properly.

I agree with Schrodinger's Cat. Lee makes some of the nicest knives around. I have three of his. One of each, if you will, Semi Skinner, Drop Point Hunter, and a Bird and Trout knife. They are all exceptional blades.

I have a question about pins vs bolts.

Those pins look very nice on those handles. But how much do they hold, or rather,I should say, what is their holding mechanism as opposed to say a Loveless style bolt?

The pictures don't do the knives justice! I could not be more pleased with the quality of the knives. Looking forward to a bird and trout. Lee, excellent work!
