    Thanks much Stuart. Dave's work is wonderful. You won't be disappointed. The Cunninghams are fine too. I'm watching his site now. :cool:

    As long as you don't compare it to Dave's beautiful expertly skilled work, I'd say it's not bad.
    Simple in looks, but functional with it's imperfections.

    This was mostly just some practice with my new cheap 1x30 belt sander, but also an experiment.
    I had a worn out Nicholson Mexico file and I wanted to see if it could make a suitable knife.
    The tang quenched hard enough to snap which was a good sign, and I believe I was right because it responded well to my diamond stones.

    I think it's a keeper, it just needs a sheath.

    I sent this one over to the Bernard Levine forum for evaluation. I think it is Toten, Norway, pre-war; all info welcome! 7 3/4 inches overall, just a dandy size. unmarked. Curly birch and nickel silver. pu1.jpg pu3.jpg pu10.jpg

    Lovely! I'm not a gun person (nothing really against, just don't own any) but still those two go well together.

    Herter's/Inc//Waseca/Made in USA. I still think I saw this on the R Murphy website, but it's not there now.

    There aren't many to be found, but that hasn't made them valuable.

    Who put that dust on my keyboard?

    I remember those bad boys from the hilarious George Leonard Herter catalogs and absurd little books that he penned. Herters was big in 1963. I ordered a number of things from that mailorder house back in the day. Someone owns the name now but nothing in common with the old institution.

    How about this classic that was just gifted to me? Going to clean her up and get her back into service.[​IMG]

    Here's a good old fixed blade.
    Bearing in mind the "Q" doesn't stand for quartermaster, these were not wired to pallets by their handles, they were not meant for tearing up wooden crates, and somebody here has a picture of one on a paratrooper's hip. (Just thought I'd try to get that all out of the way.)

    The Nighthawk sheath is perfect for it. Unfortunately my Nighthawk is stuck with that grizzly great molle plastron sheath.
