    Thanks again:eek: Best part for me was the price. I won this on EBay (normally not a fan but:rolleyes: ) for $69.00:eek: . I have been looking for a knife like this for some time. Seemed to me custom was the way to go, but I have three daughters..... ya three. Money is like the "Hunt for Red October" in my house sometimes;)

    Tamix, nice blade, btw. Looks like a real working knife that still has it's own look and personality. Nice to hang on the belt no doubt.

    Heres a good "old" fixed blade I just got in the mail today. It is a Cattaraugus. It seems to me more like a bakelite handle, but the listing called it hard rubber. I've posted it in the Levine forum to learn more about it, but if any of you guys have some info or ID feel free to share it here.

    I like to make the basic old school pattern fixed blades like the one LC has. This is a pic of my current EDC fixed blade I made awhile back along with two of my favorite woods tools a KOA hatchet and a Winchester folder.

    NIce looking knife and associated tools. Definitely woodsrunner gear!

    What's the size on that fixed blade? The Winchester seems to loom a little.

    A nice sized knife for EDC indeed! That Tusker btw, looks like it would make a good soldier's knife. It gives off Randall vibes.

    Hey there Clint,

    What a beauty this little drop point custom piece is!:thumbup: The fit and finish is dead nuts flawless, notice the bolsters radius and the riccaso and/or tang line up square just as pretty as you please! All topped off with nice gnarly stag or bone stag scales!?! I also like the dedication engraving, or is that an acid etch? Either way, nice touch!;) Scott's work is really something to behold.

    Clint,

    What type of steel is this knife made from?

    Thanks sunnyd,
    It's been so many years ago (13-14 yrs) that I don't remember what Scott told me the steel was. I do remember him asking what kind I wanted , I told him to choose. Probably a good thing, I've field dressed at least 6 deer with it and have never had to sharpen it.
    I'll get some better pics that show the file work (top and bottom) and the tapered tang. I'm sure the scales are Sambar.
    I believe it's acid etched as is his logo on the other side.

    Clint, that is one fine looking hunting knife. That is the perfect size for the whitetail hunter.
    Amos, thanks, the Tusker is right popular. :D
    SunnyD, great thread you got going here. Such a neat selection of blades being shown.

    Always love stag handles.:thumbup:

    N2S, that's quite a display of very "traditional" blades there!

    psycho78,
    What looks to be an old 1800's Sheffield's sticker with stag handle complete with a possibly the original matching scabbard. In any case its absolutely a true bonafide gift at $4. USD. Does it have any marking still legible on the riccaso/tang? It might prove interesting to look and see?!

    not2sharp,
    What a wonderful display of very vintage pieces from the old country!.:thumbup: I wish I knew more about such ultra cool edged weapons.

    OK Del, that does it. :)

    Here is my semi-legendary "D'holder Unfolder".....that Del convinced me to buy at our club show here in AZ. It's just a bit over 5" and is designed for pocket carry. I'm happy that I listened to him.

    P. S.
    Nice knife Del.....as are all of the ones in this thread.
