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.

EMc in Desert Ironwood

Scott recently finished this EMc for a friend and colleague. The EMc or "Everyman Carry" is a user knife so Scott typically gives it a rustic (hammer-marked/belt-sanded) finish and often uses Cruforge V. This is his first EMc in Desert Ironwood, and I think it looks fabulous. This blade also came with a custom leather sheath.

Steel: Cruforge V
Finish: Rustic
Handle: Desert Ironwood
Overall Length: 8 1/2 inches
Blade Length: 4 1/4 inches
Sheath: Leather

Thanks for looking!
