    I thought I would share this..Its a long hunter that we made several years ago..Just found the pics..Its made from a piece of 100 or so year old sawmill blade steel..Curly maple handles..
    What do you think? Im getting the itch to make another one.

    Hey Lisa,

    Great looking knife! I've got a pair of them with one looking exactly like that and the other with a little slimmer and more pointed blade. I traded the owner of T.J.'s Custom Leather for them several years ago and he told me they were made by someone in Kentucky. What does your touchmark look like? Could you have made the pair I have?

    Scott

    That knife is great. Looks like it walked right out of the history books.

    I thought of cutting a nice big streak and drinking a beer, but then I am often thinking of steak and beer.

    That's a cool knife. I've always like how curly maple looks as knife scales.

    Love the maple's character, and the subtle finger guard. Not a fan of long blades, but that's just me. Great-looking period piece!
