Great pic, Ches!
Your knives look great, Iz. They look very functional. I really like that 16.
What a nice thread! Can.t stop looking to all those beauties. Realy nice pics folks. Thanks.
When i can't sleep...i don't count sheep...no, i count Green Rivers 8-D
Don't forget to add the hidden tang you did awhile back. Been waiting to see it added then I will post pics.
Hopefully I'll get around to updating all these in the next couple of days. Depends on what kind of time I get.
No hurry brutha, just a reminder to do at some point.
I've got a Green River on order from you (around #489 or so, on "The List"). And I'm really stoked!
I'm writing because I wanted to get your observation as to if your Green River design and geometry has any structural influences from either the historical or modern versions of the 'scramaseax' style knife. The swooping "broken back" drop-down of the scramaseax point ... seems somewhat similar to the Green River's point.
Thank you (in advance)!
Good question. I can say I've never heard of a scramaseax but from what I see it's pretty cool.
I looked them up but couldn't find a good historical example of one, lots of maker's interpretations which I'm not sure are correct or not.
To answer your question, the green river was influenced by the Gasconade which was influenced mainly by use. Just figuring out what I liked best in a woods knife honestly.
Here's a write up I did on the Gasconade and Green river in case you're interested.
Great question, man.
