    Since this is a gun forum, here is a knife that relates to guns- a shell-puller.
    These were designed to pull swollen shells from a break-open shotgun chamber. Knives like this fell out of favor in the 1960s. Originals are now expensive collector items.
    This is a knife that I converted to shell-puller configuration. I didn't make the knife-it's a standard, production Hubertus lever lock. My conversions of these knives are quite popular. Many are pictured on my web site. Here is the latest one: IMG_4904.JPG

    Here's a shell puller that is full custom. I made every part on it.

    I really like the laminated abalone material.
    Here is a Bauer .25 that I customized for myself. I polished the slide and small parts, then made a set of the abalone grips. IMG_4459.JPG IMG_4460.JPG
