    Learn something new every day. Today I learned that, and what a Louisiana toothpick is.

    Loved that thing!!
    I think I eventually burned the handle off in a drunken stupor one night at the weekend place.

    I know what an Arkansas toothpick is but never heard of a Louisiana toothpick.

    I've got the skinner, but haven't used it much. Good knives though.

    Guard is done. Leather was soaked in water. Built a simple press for the handle to compress and dry in...also to be used after the glueing.

    They’re handy. But a good knife requires a good sheath as well. I think I’ll have my buddy who’s into that kind of thing, see what he can do.

    I've got something similar, but with a shorter handle, from Fisker...
