The Western 48s are great knives. I also like the 58s and 77s.
Tell me about it, I absolutely love my black beauty f48a. I'm sure glad that mine hasn't actually been over sharpened like yours has.
WOW!!, I always like it when you show these beauties my friend - two very nice knives!
Class act there Primbs....... lovely knife!
Now there is a Rudy Rodeo! That RC Ward & Son sheath is special, too! A great chronology, from square-cut to Hangas-made! Thanks for showing!
Thanks for looking. That's an older photo, but I felt it showed more progression than just posting 1 by 1... I have a few different stamps the fit in between the m's and the little lknife stamps but have acquired those more recently and only have solo shots. I like all types of knives, but none are allowed to be safe queens. Some people shudder when I grab an 80 year old knife a start cleaning out an elk, but I just tell them to buy it from me and they can do with it as they choose.
Love those westerns too!
Completed...it was a nice project to keep my mind from things. Leather is sealed with my own concoction of beeswax and a few other natural ingredients to make it water proof, more supple and not dry out. I had a few tradition things that I enjoy with fixed blades, a few modern things I like and sheath wise I was inspired by Scandinavian sheathes a little. First sheath like that i've made, was a challenge!
Condor Hudson Bay, my fave camping knife
I bought one of the Buck SFO fixed blades in 5160 blade steel last month - this is a model 118. OH
Very nice! I have been playing with thought of buying one Buck's smaller fixed blades and those with brass (?) details look so good!
AL, you won't be sorry - I recommend one! OH
That is an unusual tip on your Buck. I don't recall seeing one like it before?
I can second that, they are really nice in hand, have great steel, and a classic feel.
The Rapid River line looks really cool, and made in the mitten to boot! Do you know anything about their folders F&F? You say their fixed have great finish, and customer service is good so I don't have doubts.
OH, thanks for posting this. I had no idea Buck had SFOs in 5160. I now have a 110 in Oak on the way!
Got this one in High School .
Got this big boy in High School. I got out in 1984 so I bought both of these Old Timers between 1980-84.
