    Here's another one of Dave Shirley's replica Scagels.
    I found a pic of the original on the web and the replica seems close enough.

    KSF sold these without a sheath and I had to make one. It's more for edgeprotection as I don't carry this one in the belt.

    Regards

    Thanks for the advice, Gary! ;)
    I'll probably wait until the warm weather before I get serious.

    Yep, an Ithaca model 37 in 16ga and you’re right, it sure is in great condition for being made in 1967. I searched for a while to find one this clean at a decent price. Found out after buying it that it was actually made the same year as my dad’s which was quite a surprise. I paid a lot more for mine though lol. Thank you for the comment Bill :thumbsup:

    Very nice! Beautiful is right! Thanks for posting!
    A little off topic but, we went to see the Call of the Wild movie Sunday. Really enjoyable.
    It was nice to see a sheath knife, with a stag antler crown handle on the belt of Francois, the French Canadian mail driver. Nice touch.

    I had a sweet 16 Ithaca and I'm sorry I ever sold it. What a great shotgun.

    Most of those "repops" were ground quite thick, like Scagel's blades, but that's a beautiful, useful knife, John!! Is there a year on it anywhere?

    Scagel#17 fishing 003.jpg

    The #17 came extremely thick and a lot of thinning was necessary before it started to cut.
    It's too big for EDC, but a great alternative to a Buck 112.

    Regards

    Charlie, I edited my post with a link to the KSF page which does not have any definitive information, there is a 95 in the heading but I think that may be a pattern number. I don't think these were part of the numbered ones that came in a white plastic box, these came in a heavy duty Scagel pocket slip. I was told that they may have been made around 2009 but I can't confirm that. There is no year on the knife and the only tang stamps are the double dagger Scagel stamp.

    Thanks John, for the page and explanation!
    Nice knife, @Mikael W !! I agree about the grind!!
    I had a bunch of the plastic-box Scagel repops, after Queen started making them! Mostly gone now to good homes!!

    Great thread Waynorth!

    Scagle reproductions and Sagle style customs are one of my fagorites! For some reason, I own none!!

    Following this thread!

    I love Scagel style knives, that's almost the only style knife I make now days. Here are some pics, I hope you enjoy them.
