Discussion in 'Turley Knives' started by Iz, Mar 4, 2012.
If you got pics you're more than welcome to put them up here.
Here is #16.
Ill post up a ton of pics of #4 when I get home later
Here's a few of #10
I have the prototype!!!
This is my most used knife, In my humble opinion this is the most versatile knife in Iz's line-up.
I have had 5 Turleys, and while I loved all of them, I have since sold 4 of them...the Green River is the lone standing Turley, that should tell you something.
Josh I really dig the look of that green micarta with the natural spacers. I may have to modify my order some after I see more pics of these. I'm getting progressively closer and closer to the top of the list. Can't wait.
Heres number 4
Great pics, guys!
it also says a lot your ability to nail down what's truely important to you - something to be proud of for sure!
#4 out at the lake
Great pics, K. You need a canoe, that lake looks like fun.
Attempted some food prep/ tomato batoning tonight with my G.R. Enjoy
I would have taken some during pictures for ya'll but I was to busy feeding my face.
ETA: I believe this is #25 for those that wanted to know.
Hawkcreek, my gut is growling now.....MMMMMM bacon steak, onions and maters.
Nice GR, what number is it?
It was actually a little more than I should have eaten but I just couldn't stop.
I've no idea what number it is. If you go to Turleyknives.com it is the second to last one in the Green River gallery if that helps. It is the one that sold at the beginning of March with the coyote/earth G10 handle material. Hope that helps you out some.
Great pics, bro. Now I'm starving. heh.
I need to update these threads, I'm not even sure what number that one is. When I get some time I'll get it figured out.
Thanks for the pics, brutha.
Not sure how I missed this. I'll try and round up some pics of #21.
Turley Time. Straight from the box.
Well I come home today and found that the mailman had come with a gift, and this is what it was. Green River 26. I will put up some working man pictures of it over the weekend. Thanks Iz for the sweet knife it was well worth the wait.
Great pics, bro. Glad it made it there safe and I'm super glad you like it. Thank you for your patience with my ineptitude the first time around. heh.
Cutting up with the Flicka!
Those scales are awesome!
Great pic, Ches!
Your knives look great, Iz. They look very functional. I really like that 16.
Thanks, man. I appreciate it.
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
Haha. Thanks, Broholmer.
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.
Thanks, Iz! And I apologize for mentioning the Scramaseax style knife without posting linked references. I'm glad you found some. Your observation is correct though ... there are a ton of variants of this Viking/Saxon knife archetype. The spear-pointed ones were the "fighters". The wharncliffe-styled ones were the traditional utility version (and the most common type found by archaeologists). About half the seax styles I've seen look like they could handle batoning. The other half of the seax styles seemed way too sloped on the spine for batoning. It's an interesting design. Capable of efficiently cutting long, straight cuts as well as draw cuts ... while also having a strong drilling point.
I think it's cool to see your Green River's inspiration (based on performance evolution) ending up at least cosmetically similar to an age-old European design that took hundreds of years to perfect. I'm sure if you could time-travel a Green River back to the 9th century Saxons ... they'd totally freak out at the engineering and design genius of your knife. They'd probably think it's a magic weapon from the Gods!
Thanks for your time and insight!
Hahaha. They'd probably stab me with it.
Interesting history, man. I love learning stuff like that. Thanks, bro!
Lets see more Pics!!
OK Here's Mine!
I am not able to see the photos. Does anyone else see them?
yes, I see it
Thank you RJ. It must be on my end. I see photos from earlier post in this thread which puzzles me for sure.
Congrats on the knife Tom. Looks like its gonna get lots of good use. Knife looks great Iz.
Thanks for the pic, Tom!
I just keep goin back to ol faithfull.
Number 11 as a virgin...
[Horrible asian accent] Ohhh me so hor-nay! [/Horrible asian accent]
Hey what's the scale material on Joe's knife? I have mine ordered with the green micarta but as I get closer I have been seriously considering modifying that to the caramel. That light color looks pretty sweet.
Its bone g10
atcgriffin, that is one beautiful knife and hard to get sheath, and its all in new condition. Very nice,
It's no longer in new condition. I'll post the knife and sheath in current form soon. Thanks for comments.
Great pics, guys.
Pictures still don't do this one justice....
Now I want one!
this is a handsome design ...
