    Hello all,
    I would like to show you a drop point hunter that I have had the chance to experiment with.
    As you can see I experimented with a longer guard and re-worked mosaic pins.

    IR Bailey inspired Drop point Hunter
    3 3/4" Hollow ground 01 Blade
    Overall Length 8"
    Phenol handle with red liners on a tapered tang.
    fittings are brass and mosaic pins.
    makers mark and date applied with a Burgess engraver.
