Hand made knife

My one riding buddy here is pretty talented and is always crafting something new. Two years ago he made tabletop patio heaters and this past winter he decided to try his hand at knife making. He learns all this from YouTube. Anyway, when I heard he was making knives, I told him I wanted one. He finished his first round, I got to see how they turned out, and told him I damn sure wanted one too. He made me 2...
Check out the pics....

I plan on taking the knife to an Amish place local here and getting a leather sheath made for the larger knife.
All together I think he knocked it out of the park. And the blade has his initials stamped in it.
Anyway, thought some of you guys would appreciate this.
