    Nothing historically accurate in any way shape or form, but just a companion blade to another rendition I made a month ago or so in a Doc Holliday pearl handled revolver. This winter has been long and crummy (as usual) so I got on a Doc H kick after watching too many of my old dvd westerns. I first modded up a pearl handled revolver that at least looks a bit like his reported 1877 pearl handled Colt Lightning, and it just seemed boring without a companion blade.

    So I picked up a recent manufactured Schrade Old Timer Boot/Belt knife, and replaced the hollow plastic grips with some Kirinite white pearl ones using material I had left over from the revolver grips mod. Just some fun pieces to toss an old loosely replica reference to.
    I made a (picture gallery) video of it below.

    Nice work...makes a nice combo.
    -Sad to see Schrade cutting corners,
    (cheaping out) like that.

    Schrade USA went out of business years ago.
    Names get bought, sold and appropriated.

    To the OP, NICE WORK!
