    A superb all around hunter / skinner / caper knife forged by G. L. Drew with ats-34. Mr. Drew is one of our own here at bf.com and quite a talented knife maker. I own several of his knives now and I am quite pleased with them. This one is new and has just seen some kitchen duty thus far, however a hog hunt is in the cards and will soon be its next venue.:D

    OK then Guys & Gals,

    Howz about my custom Stek double edged fighter with 7.5 inch basket weave Damascus blade that is razor sharp.. The guard and pommel are also Damascus. The handle is round stock (he, he, haw, :D )Oosik and is cured to a gorgeous Maple brown color that was found in the perma frost of Alaska. The spacers are black buffalo horn, jade, red jet and nickle silver.

    If I were a riverboat gambler in 1800s Georgia, that is what I'd like to have on my hip. :D

    Agreed. Great thread. I just picked this one up awhile back. Had a chance to use it a little.

    L6 band-saw steel w/ a patina. Hickory scales. Light weight and a great slicer.

    YIKES,,:eek:..yes Ms. Bobbets knife of choice, no doubt..:rolleyes: :p :D.. Good One Amos!.:thumbup:.. And yes, she does whistle while she works.

    Thanks to all for the compliments. This one is an all time favorite of mine, no doubt about it. Its extremely well balanced and subsequently is wielded in the hand with very little effort. This Damascus is a joy to sharpen and keeps an edge for great lengths of time. It cuts and cleaves with ease and devours the target with just one well placed strike because of the additional secondary deadly back-cut thanks to the sharpened top edge. A fine weapon all around.

    Great looking cutter tarmix! Good old honest tool steel and lots of belly in the design. I absolutely love Hickory, and for some reason it is so rarely ever used as handle material. I've often wondered why that is.. BTW, Who is the maker of this little gem?

    I have heard of ML Knives. He has been around for a pretty long while now on the Internet. He was making mostly period pieces for lots of different folks.. For reenactors, films, etc. as I recall.

    Your knife looks very sweet indeed.. Man, I just love that Hickory! I bet that L-6 cuts like the dickens too.. And those Hickory scales.. BTW, Did I mention I just love Hickory:rolleyes: ;) :D :thumbup:
