    :confused: Seems to be showing. Just a crummy pic. :eek:
    I think there was just a server type glitch a few minutes ago.

    EDITED:
    OK, it's a thumbnail now. Sorry.

    Nice pair of fixed blades Bill. I used to have a really nice stag handled knife made from an old saw mill blade with the engine turning on it. This one was made in Alaska. I picked it up in Valdez back in the early 90's when my mom & brother came up to visit and we took them on a roundybout camping trip to Denali, Anchorage, and Valdez, then back to Fairbanks. Man, I sure miss that knife.

    Old wolves like us sure seem to like those stag handled knives, eh? :)

    Yes sir, as an "old wolf" stag has always been one of my favorite..........meals. :D

    Makes for great knife handles, for sure.

    I do like some modern handle material as well.....

    Not a Bowie, or a "sticker"...but it does have "Three Virtues." :)

    Keep 'em coming...great thread.

    Tracer-San, I think WOW to the extreme might be the appropriate comment! Lovely collection of fixed blade beauties.

    They're not mine, I just played with them a lot before they got sold by the makers :)

    Bill, I posted a review earlier of a Rapid River knife I got recently. That KR is very nice and obviously very traditional. RR offers a production piece with a somewhat "gnarly" antler handle as well.

    I'll have to see if they can make one up that is left-hand friendly ;)

    Hadn't seen your review...so I had to go read it. I'll look for the followup as well. :thumbup:
    The KR was made in 1981, but he still makes the same model, as well as his other models.

    I have a Howling Rat here somewhere...(rustle, rustle)...here we go.....

    OK, OK, I purloined the picture from the SRKW website. But mine is from the very first run, with the nylon sheath. Funny thing is, I've never taken a good picture of it, or gotten around to using it. :eek: :(

    I guess this is as good a place to post this then any where else. I finally got some pictures taken of the knives I've collected since the 60's. My dad got me started when he shipped me a box of Filippino knives. They are the ones that are rusty. I will be able to do something about them now that I'm getting a knife shop started up. I'm planning of cleaning up the blades and preserving them. Click on the link below to my Yahoo photo album and then click on "My Knife" folder. I also have a folder for the forge my son-in-law and I built last weekend.\

    Here are my two ToadStickers...Ones an Arno Bernard Warthog Tusk & the other is an Elk Stag Damascus given to me as a gift. I use the Stag for my everyday skinning knife but have had a hard time sharpening that baby...I plan on using the Warthog on my next skinning adventure, that blade is scary sharp..Those old hairy 'Piney Wood Rooters" make it rough on keeping an edge compared to skinning deer...

    Does anyone have any advice on how to clean up my mistake. Looking at the above Elk Stag handle, notice the discolortation, I stored that knife in it's leather sheath before I knew better and have ruined the stag. Is there a way to remove the discoloration??? Thanks..

    Terry Primos, forged 1084 and iron wood, a little over 8 inches overall. I got this one right here on the sale forums. I immediately sent it off to Paul Long (a.k.a. Sheathmaker around these parts:D ).
    Paul and Terry are two guys who definitely know what's what.

    Well, Sunburst, I'd think if a toad is gonna get stuck, he'd prefer it to be with one of those fine stickers.

    Thomason, what that other wolf said!

    Great things just keep showing up here. Don't forget, toss in some of those old working blades and odd favorites.

    waredbear,
    Very cool album of your knife collection and that awesome looking little forge you and your bro-in-law fashioned up! I especially like those old Filipino's.

    Sunburst,
    Cool knives. I had a similar Arno Bernard skinner/caper before I sold it at a recent local knife show. His knives are scary sharp and his Boar Tusk scales are sweet looking too.

    Thomason,
    Nice Primos knife and that custom sheath makes it a classic set.

    Amos,
    While rooting around my knife chest I found one of my favorite old Marbles classics that I thought may fit the bill.. Vintage Woodcraft with a leather wrapped handle and a round-stock Stag pommel with the 1916 dated Marbles tang stamp. The leather sheath is one of my early attempts as a sheath maker.:rolleyes: :D

    Close enough to be a PHOTO finish. :D

    How about a Western combo I've carried out and about?
