A "Full Monty" Native

Although the film The Full Monty might lead one associate the phrase "going Full Monty" with taking off  one's clothes, according to Phrase Finder, "the most often-repeated derivation is from the tailoring business" and refers to "a complete three-piece suit." At Guinea Hog Forge we subscribe to the latter derivation and going "Full Monty" with us means buying a knife with two sheaths and a custom rig, so if you were hoping to see a little skin here . . . well, take a closer look at the leather work - it's part of a custom 3-piece set that goes with blade:)

Scott recently finished this "Full Monty" Native for a customer. He hand-forged it out of Cruforge V, gave the blade a "Rustic" finish, then fitted the knife with a scalloped Micarta handle, and dressed it in two sheaths (Kydex and leather), as well as a custom Kydex shoulder holster rig.

Steel: CruForgeV
Handle: Scalloped Micarta
Finish: Rustic
Blade: Recurve
Overall Length: 11 1/4 inches
Blade Length: 6 1/4 inches
Sheaths: Leather and Kydex
Extras: Kydex shoulder holster

Thanks Dave! Enjoy.
