    Top knife made from saw mill band saw blades by the late Bill Mayfield of Clarendon Arkansas, He made several hundred of them in various sizes from 1978-1986 or so. I have 3 of them.

    Bottom is a old green river skinner that come out of a old farm estate that I got in 1980 for 5 bucks.

    That is a real glock field knife right ? Cause I've been seeing Chinese copy's recently ( I had to ask because you also have that Pakistani Bowie there )
    Not that it matters or anything, but I was just wondering.

    Yes It a 1980's Glock Knife. Back then they sold for about 20 bucks . It takes a good edge. The Bowie is a luck buy. It actually got good steel and I use it in Civil War enactments to show the power of a Bowie , I cut a Brisket in half with one swing.

    The knife on the far left is a old Hickory pig sticker.

    That's cool, they're usually so much of a gamble and I've never been able to get a good Pakistani knife.

    It does look a bit different than that on stainless steel production models, perhaps a bit shorter on the swedge. Here are four variations made over the last 48 years - there are variances in the pommels, guards, swedges, blades, and tips. OH

    Who made that one Corwyn? Looks to be an antler insert as well?

    Here's my Pasi Hurttila "Tuohisarvi" puukko in K510 silver steel, stacked birch with Reindeer antler accents. It's sharp enough to filet an atom.

    A local craftsman called Enrico Deliomini,
    Mine has got a Lauri SS blade 95 mm, brass bolster, moose antler, veneer, leather and birch handles.

    He also makes fully custom blades:

    So here is another classic fixed blade I've found. It has "FABRIQUE EN ALLEMAGNE" and UTICA markings on the blade.

    And here it is after I re-handled it with stacked leather. Another picture is with a similar knife (marked PAL) I've done earlier.

    Good job on the re-handles. Allemagne is the French name for Germany. I did not know that Utica imported German knives. Looks 1950s to me.

    Thanks. I expect the color and looks will improve with wear as it is usually the case with leather. The blade will darken too so whatever traces of corrosion and grinder will also fade away.
    As for the markings it absolutely makes sense: the knife was probably imported for Quebec thus marked in French. I bought it in Calgary but in general it looks like Quebec is the place to go for classic knives.

    Agree on the 1950's or early 1960's. (agree with the rest, too.) There were a slough of German huntling knife imports in that time period with stag handles of similar design.
