The top two knives were kits. I did the acid etching on the blades and used/installed a much better pivot screw and phosphorus bronze washers for lightning fast speed opening the blade.  I also made the lanyards from 550 Paracord. The knives are named: Baby Bengals, I made the top Baby Bengal for my daughter, I carry the other on a daily basis. I have also made in the past throwing knives, I've been into competition knife throwing a number of years ago. Been throwing knives since I'm 8 years old and still do outside from time to time.
The second picture is an Enlan knife made in China, but excellent quality. I did however also change the pivot screw and pivot washers to a much better quality. On this knife I did acid etching, which was time consuming, but the end result was well worth it. The knife was named after an HBO series which I enjoyed: Deadwood. Both sides of the blade are acid etched, same driftwood but different placement. ALL acid etching was hand done, no stencils were used, just freehand. Let me know what you think, thanks!!

Very nice work there Ted especially your Deadwood knife, most impressive freehand etching I've seen in a long time.

Cheers
