    Ethan I cannot find the words to express how awesome it has been that Mark and yourself have shared this history with us! Many people in this world of knives talk about grails but this truly is a grail knife! Maybe if Nessmuk's knife, Bowie's sandbar knife, or Excalibur are found we may have competition :) For now this Kephardt find has got to be one of the coolest historical knives in America.

    Couldn't agree more. What an amazing find, and, like you say, Ethan is a good guy for sharing it with us.

    there's a maker on the B&B forum building one -- he got some good, detailed pics "at a gun show".
    my suspicion is he may have actually been talking to E at the time.

    Thanks for all the kudos and kind words...... this blade is becoming a project---- research, replication and use testing with the replicas...... I hope to have something to share in the near term..... that is a matter of months...... this blade has a lot to teach all of us..... a lot...

    What fun it is to share this journey......
