Slip-Joint Trapper - perfect for whittling - or for your collection.

The weather here in Texas today is warm and wonderful and this weekend is forecast to be the same. 
I think it's time to shake off winter and enjoy some sunshine. 

There's a beautiful canyon just miles from our home in Amarillo called Palo Duro Canyon. It's a great place to hike and (of course) pick you out a nice piece of mesquite and whittle.  

Although this slip-joint trapper would make the perfect tool for "whittlin'" in the canyon, you can't - because it's a collector piece I made for a client in Boston.  If you'd like one - let me know. I'll be glad to custom make one just for you. 

It's a double-blade -trapper with Sambar stag scales, featuring Thorny Vine file work on the blades and springsand made of ATS 34 hardened to 60 RC - with 416 Stainless Steel liner and bolsters. 

Have a great weekend everyone and "Howdy" from Texas!
