Custom kitchen, camping, hunting, and fishing knives, etc. that I make and sell. Please contact me for a current catalog or visit www.customknifehandles.com. Most are made with burl wood that I collected while working in the Russian Far East and in a style learned from locals there. Bolsters are usually mammoth ivory or deer antlers.
These are photographs of tigers taken during the course of my conservation work in Russia. Photos of wild Siberian tigers are extremely rare and difficult to find, yet here are several. See www.wcsrussia.org for further information about these tigers.
