    Here is my daily carry knife. It'a a liner-lock barlow with stag. Stainless steel liners and bolsters. Heat treated liner-lock spring. The blade is an unusual take on a sheepsfoot vs warncliff blade. I call it a RazorBeak because it's profile reminds me of a bird of prey's beak and a utility knife razor blade. It is wicked sharp and I use it for all kinds of things.

    This one I just got in the mail today. It's a gift for my Brother-in-law. Huge Oregon Ducks fan.

    @David Kramp WOW! I can't believe it … after so many years wanting my slipjoint returned there is hope! Yes, I still own that MOP sowbelly stockman knife and a stag jack your dad made for me, one of my favorites. Please put me in touch with him. You can email me through a link by clinking on my name. Thanks a million, I carried that slipjoint for many years and have an attachment to it.

    Will do @LastRodeo He needs to be setup as a knifemaker on the forum. It should serve him well. Look for @EdKramp in the coming days.

    @David Kramp got your email, thanks! Here is the MOP sowbelly you asked about displaying your dad's old mark. Knife has been carried and used. D2, made in 01.

    Love this blade.

    No washers, dovetailed bolsters, exquisite filework.

    Your dad made this knife for me using stag he had been saving, emulates Winterbottom bone. Another from 2001, you can partially see the OKC stamp. It's so fine.

    Thanks @Chief. As beautiful as I remember them. He dovetails the bolsters and scales now instead of butt-joints. It’s a detail I really like. And he does half-stops. Thanks for showing them. He’ll be happy to get your knife back to you.

    Those are really nice knives.... I especially like the sowbelly stockman. As others have said, your dad is an artist in knives. I imagine they are well out of my price range, but they look to be wonderfully made.
