Knives in the Meantime
« on: May 07, 2018, 11:16:43 AM »
While waiting to take my 1850's era hunting dagger back to Boston so I can weld a new tang on, I finished up this little Keeslar flared finger guard hunting knife with antler scales OAL 7 1/2 inches with 3 1/2 inch blade of 1084 carbon steel.  Another with Turquoise & Walnut handle..tippit

Thanks for the kind comments...I needed that.  I gave these two knives as a Thank You for taking me fishing last spring.  I was supposed to go again this year but my little tracking/hunting partner came down with leukemia.  I stayed home to keep her comfortable and after 6 weeks let her rest in peace.  I never received a note on the knives if they liked them or not...kind of a double whammy for the a summer I'd like to forget.

Great looking knives Jeff.  I really like the overall size and blade profile on those.  That looks right up my alley for a skinner.  Just something small, light, thin, and sharp.

I'm sorry about your dog.  That walnut turquoise looks great.

Scott,
You need to send that knife back to me to improve the blade.  They are a whole lot better now. Maybe I can twist your arm to make me a new sheath.  :saywhat:

Are you joking about sending it back? I definitely can build more sheaths. Setting my shop up it’s been at least 4 years since I had my own shop!

I'm not joking...but maybe the best way is to just make you a newer version.  Draw what would be your preferred hunting knife on a piece of cardboard as to size & shape and send it to me.  I don't make very many hidden tang knives as I just like slim knives.

I like the feel of the one you made me. I like Keeslar finger guard.

I have a feeling that the blade edge might be a bit thick. Time, experience, and great Master Bladesmith teachers have refined my rolled edge.  That's what I'd probably change on your old Keeslar style knife...plus I don't think I was hand finishing blades then either.  So you can still send it back for a tune up.
