Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I`m sure you all remember the contest I had for my Anniversary Knife. Well, jds1 had submitted a design he called the Michigan Trail Knife. Here is the original drawing. Its 8" overall, with a 3 3/4" blade. Today was the day that Jeff came down from Michigan to finish the knife with me. He came bearing a gift of Sam Adams dark ale! This is as far as I went before Jeff got here this morning, profiled, heat treated, and ground. While the handles were glueing on we cooked some burgers on the grill (charcoal, of course!) Here it is with the handles and white liners before shaping. Here is the completed knife, a classic drop point hunter. I`m adding it to my line. Here is the new owner, and designer, jds1. I had a great day, and look forward to meeting more of you guys!
