    I am in agreement with you on that Jeff.

    I'm glad you like her.. That is what as known as a 'parry strip'. Back in the day before Sam Colt made all men equal, the most common of a gentlemens personal defense weapons was the fighting knife. Among many of ones choices was the Bowie knife made popular by James Bowie.. After this knife gained some serious popularity somewhere along the way some smithy filled in the back of the spine with the 'parry strip'. Legend has it that the idea behind this engineering was that this softer metal, 'brass' would catch your opponents much denser steel blade during battle.. And then one would have the advantage of disarming said foe and afford one the upper hand.

    Mike,

    That Stag has some wonderfully hard bark on her there!

    This is a an old Kabar pattern that Cargill used. One of the first Cripple Creeks made. This is the little brother to the larger model I posted before.
    Stag matches up pretty good. I hate to have to repeat myself but, I only post photos of the ORIGINAL Cripple Creeks and not the new phonies.

    That I*XL is fantastic: pattern, shape,blades, bolster and that stag isn't exactly shoddy either

    Seen it before but can never get enough of that knife, SUPERB! Is it on the Sheffield thread?

    Thanks for posting, all shows that some things do get better with age(count humans out of that one)

    Thanks guys. Yes, that IXL is in Mick's Sheffield thread somewhere. It has "Virginian" on the blade so it was made for this market. There are a couple of very small pin cracks on it.

    Here's a newer knife with stag from an older carving set:

    Ken,

    Tony took the stag off of an old piece of carving cutlery and re-used it on this knife.

    All three of these knives have stag that were at one time on a carving set. I no longer have the knife in the middle.

    Oh my! Now I understand, sometimes I just need more coffee in the morning.

    I am glad you posted Mike, that's a good source of great stag not often considered. I will remember to put that in my memory bank and keep an eye out for vintage carvers , maybe not in the best of condition, that could give up their handles for a worthy cause.

    Colin, that was Tony's version of a Case 83 balloon whittler. It was made a while back and came with the correspondence between Tony and the buyer and his sketches of the pattern. It's bigger than a regular Case 83, but I'm not sure how big since I don't have it any more. Kerry posted pics of it in the Bose thread after another owner sent it back for a fluff and buff.

    Mike, that balloon whittler is gorgeous. I don't know how you can give up a knife like that.
