    here is my buck bf 2018 - the stag is lighter, but it really looks excellent in hand (excuse the lighting)
    ps, does elk count as stag? (I know they're different, but I don't know if stag must mean male red deer or not?) I generally hear it used for all male deer

    Can you tell me more about this one? Age? Maker? Any history? Iron bolsters and pins? Looks Like it could have been a good patch knife or a soldier's companion knife. Thanks.

    I am sorry that I can not give you any answers on the Maker or History . It does have Steel or Iron Bolsters , Pins , and Liners . It is 4 & 1/2 inches long when closed . The Handle thickness varies for 3/4 " to 1.00 " . It was probably made as Hawkbill Pruner and has been sharpened such that the hawkbill is basically gone . The Kick has been filed some amount . There is no information on the Tang and it appears to have Never been there . The Opening Pull is probably an 8 . There is a Half Stop . I do not think it had been carried too much by previous owners . There is very little wear on the Stag in my opinion . It looks like someone just liked to sharpen the blade . It does take a very good edge for such a heavy blade . My history with it is that I won the bidding for it on the Big Auction Site 2 weeks ago .

    Some Nineteenth Century Stag:
    Fixed blade by G. NIXON & SON SHEFFIELD also marked DELTA and UNITED STATES HUNTING KNIFE dating c.1850-65. Condition collectable for a 150+ year-old knife. Folder (broken pen blade) unmarked with square and clean joints and square kicks, and a true split spring. Condition poor, but a great example of mid-nineteenth century cutlery. If they could only talk! Thanks for watching. T-A

    This week I've been carrying a Rough Rider stag medium stockman and an A. Wright & Son stag "senator pattern" with lambsfoot blade (regarding the latter, thanks for the GAW, Richard).

    S&M gunstock trapper and an old Asten Felts Kabar. I think these are the only stag knives I own.

    (Edit: I can't spell Asten even with an example handy, apparently...)

    One of my favorite "Wabi-Sabi" knives...this pre-64 Puma White Hunter was found several decades ago on top of a mountain ridge in southeast British Columbia.

    Photos of before and after cleanup.

    Also...if it is your knife, just tell me where you lost it and I will return your knife.
