    Yeah I sell some it helps support the hobby. the prices vary. Some people like the plain ones others like the shiny fancy ones. Just let me know what you want and we can go from there. the regular hunting calls field grade have a oil finish so there is no glare and the fancier ones get a ca finish on them that is super tuff and shiny. People hunt with both kinds it just personal preference. Let me know what you want or if you have other questions let them fly.

    Those are all absolutely beautiful. I love hunting, trapping, and anything else outdoors, as does my husband, dad and brother.

    Do you have a website or a range of prices? I'm not able to buy anything right this second, but these would make awesome Christmas gifts for the men in my life.

    Oh and do you have pics of other knives you've made? My husband has started making knives with an antique forge and would love a knife if I find the spare cash.

    They are 15.00 for the field grade calls that have the low sheen oil finish, Fancier calls made from antler or exotic woods with a shiny finish are 25.00. The knifes that are shown are the only 2 I have left when I do some more I will post some pics. The calls seem to keep me pretty busy so the knifes get behind sometimes. The shipping is $5.00 priority mail for 1 call or 10 calls it is still 5.00. The grunt calls I posted I will sell for 15 each The knifes are $25.00 each without the sheaths, I have to make those yet. You could make your own if you wanted to save 10 bucks.
    Thanks for the compliments and for the intrest in them. If you have anymore ?'s let me know.

    Please do post pictures of the knives when you make more, I'll definitely want to see them.

    I'll have to think on what the guys would prefer for everything.

    I know next to nothing about knives, so no specific types. My husband uses knives for pretty much anything, cleaning and skinning animals, machetes for hacking down...everything. [​IMG] He just likes knives of all sorts. My dad and brother do as well, but my brother does a lot of predator hunting and my dad does a little of everything.

    I am curious though, have you sold a lot of any of these? You have very good prices compared to other hand made calls and knives I've seen. My husband was actually paid $50 for a machete he made, and it was no where near as pretty as your knives. He forms the blade out of whatever steel he has and makes a handle out of various types of wood, but it's always just plain wood, nothing that really stands out.

    Oh, and if you want to sell to a bigger group of people, you should set up an Etsy shop. I don't have one, so I don't know how it works, but I'm on Etsy all the time looking at stuff.
