    At the risk of being redundant (I know there is a thread like this in the "Custom and Handmade Knives" forum), I would like to start a Rick Menefee knives thread here in Traddy Town. I know there are plenty out there to share so let's see 'em.

    I'll start with a Dogleg in ivory micarta and a Large Gunstock in butterscotch micarta with black bomb shield.

    I like the gunstock!(both are nice) I do not remember if I have seen a picture of that one before. How does it feel in hand?

    The Gunstock is a new model of his I believe. Haven't seen one like it before either. The handle is 4 1/8" and very comfortable in hand. What amazes me is the thinness of the blade from the swedge out to the tip. An incredible slicer. I can see it doing fish fillet duty sometime this summer.

    elliot or Rick, What would you call the micarta on that first Dogleg. A splendid knife indeed, and not the only splendid one.

    Bosse, it's generally referred to as "natural". It can vary in shade between a tan with orange tones and brown. The other micarta is "ivory" as I'm sure is evident.

    That's a prototype I came up with and asked Rick to build.

    It's based upon the Eureka Jack frame (as graciously supplied by Tony Bose to Rick) with the addition of a modified wharncliffe (or Zulu) style blade.

    Thanks for the info. That's real nice, kinda looks like an inverted dogleg or a dogleg x sway back.

    ...have been made by my buddy Rick. He's a fine fellow. :)

    That's an elephant ivory federal shield which was a surprise gift from Rick.

    Ford, I've said this before, but the saddlehorn you got from Rick is probably the nicest knife I've ever seen.

    P.S. Where did you get that tomato, it looks perfect!

    That mammoth ivory saddlehorn is one of Rick's finest I must agree, as I think he would as well.

    Rick and I are both federal employees, and he signified our common shield in ivory as a gesture I will not forget.

    The tomato was homegrown. :)

    I'm having Rick make me a saddlehorn when my name comes up on his list (I'm thinking a little longer, maybe 3 1/2"), ever since I saw the picture of yours I wanted one.
