    It’s a Frontier Powder Horn from Imperial. It was gifted to me by @Will Power after I had shown the one Grandad carried since as long as I could remember.

    The top one is Grandad’s. The rest I picked up to to sort of complete a series. Great solid knives.

    Thank you very much for asking Shawn . I bought one of the Squirrels for a Grandson -in - law for Christmas a couple of years ago and I was amazed at the F&F of it . At that time I could only admire them because of the cost and I decided to spend my money on Folders rather than a fixed blade that I will likely never use . Still the thought of buying a small Arno Bernard with the Wart Hog Ivory in my eclectic collection really appealed to me . Finally this past Christmas my wife asked me what I really wanted and I decided that the timing was right to finally get one . The price was going up at the rate of $10 to $20 a year and there are things happening within the Arno Bernard company that made me pull the trigger . I have enough larger fixed blades to more than fill my needs . I appreciate well made products and this little Galago is indeed that . I really wanted the Wart Hog Ivory but did not have a large selection to choose from and the Galago has one of the longest handles of the little ones . It does fit a special place in my collection and I really like this little knife .

    I really like that spear point russlock. The handle color is pretty fantastic.

    Thanks. It's an older Ken Erickson. The blade and backspring are ATS-34 stainless.

    Besides the obvious qualities of that fine knife what stands out to me is the width of the blade. Some are too broad and some too narrow. This one appears to be Mama Bear just right.
