Mr. Acuña creates a wide variety of items. He is an original artist. He works in traditional media, but sometimes uses natural materials that were not readily available to his ancestors, to create totally original pieces, such as the eagle head carved from a wart hog tusk shown below. Every piece is individually crafted and the character of every piece of material is uniquely exploited. There are no two pieces alike, but themes may sometimes be repeated.

|Sheathes are priced and available separately. Charlie uses glass beads, rawhide, brain tanned elk and/or deer hide, sinew or flax thread and other traditional and natural materials. He will accept commissions to fit your favorite knife. Write Stonedge for futher information. Include specifics about size and design or other special desires or requirements.
On commissions, choose any combination of antler, bone, tusk or wood hilts with choice of steel, stainless or a variety of stones for the blade, including the option of mounting your blade within the limits of the material. He will not work on materials from endangered species, such as elephant ivory.
