This is a display case I made for my custom designed knife made by Gil Hibben. The body of the case is Blood Wood (photo is not doing justice to the grain and colors). Insert and knife on cover are Baltic Birch. Bottom is Mahogany flocked in white. Corner segments are inlaid white Pic Guard sandwiched between pieces of aluminium flashing. Hinge is recessed into lid and case. Clear hand scraped lacquer finish. case is 5" x 2 1/2" X 14 1/2" long. Knife is just over 12". And, yes, I do have a permit to carry it should I choose to.

Now that's a knife. Crocodile Dundee would be proud to own that.:biggrin:

That is some true Bloodwood. I love it. It will stay red for the life of it. Nice design in the box. I would have use different hinges but it works just fine. Thanks for showing.

Thank you John !! Gil Hibben also designed and built the knives used in the Rambo films. The red colors in the blood wood has to be seen in person to get the full beauty of the grain. The hinge was not my first choice as I wanted to use brass mortised hinges on the sides and lid but could not find any locally . Second choice would have been wooden hinges, but the top is only 1/2" thick. I will work on the wooden hinge and change the hinge out at a later date. Jim S
