    Hi everyone,
    This is where I will be posting the knives that I am making. I am a hobby knife maker. I do not have an order list (at least not as of now) but would like to post knives for sale as they become available. I decided to go with a vendor membership so that I can get some feedback from the members and to gauge interest in my work and what I have to offer. I have a few knife designs that I have been working on along with leather sheaths and leather/kydex sheaths. Thank you for your interest in Wilderness Spirit Knives. Tim

    At the present time I will be selling as I make them. Possibly taking orders in the future . The price will be in the range of $185.00 including a handmade 8-9 oz. veg. tanned tooling leather sheath. Thanks Tim

    Any Nessmuk-style blades in the future? Options for steels, handles, pins, etc? Would like to see a pic of a sheath to. Saw the blades on your other thread and they look pretty nice (though I'm not a long/pointy knife guy... I mostly like drop-point skinners in the 4" range.)

    Yes I have plans to make a Nessmuk style . I have one drawn up but need to refine it to where I am happy with the design. Steel for now will be O1. Handles will be Micarta, G10, and stabilized wood . Also a convex drop point. Will be posting pics of sheaths soon.

    I just ordered my first one guys and I have to say, he posted a few pics sometime last year and I told him I was REALLY interested in a specific one. Unfortunately at the time he was not a vendor. I got a pm yesterday stating he was open for business and if I was still interested, that to me speaks volumes, that's customer service to remember who liked what from months ago. I hope your business flourishes here sir. Thank you.

    There you are, I was reading about your knives in another thread and finally found your vendor forum. Any website? Possible more models? Welcome and I wish you much success.

    I don't have any at this time but I will give it some thought . Just came out with a small edc I will be calling the Lynx (thanks fishinfreak). It's a 2 1/2 " blade with a 3 1/2" handle approx. Should make a great all around knife.

    Very interested in the first knife pictured, maybe with white liners as opposed to black. Let me know if this one is in the works and price. Great looking work hope to see one on my belt soon.

    What are the chances of posting some pictures of the Legacy and Talon side by side? I would love to see the differences side by side.

    Talon and Legacy side by side

    005.jpg 010.jpg 017.jpg 018.jpg

    The specs for the handles and the blades are the same. Handle 4 1/2", blade 4".
    The Legacy is a Woodlore style with a coke bottle shaped handle. The Talon handle is more of an hour glass shape. The spine on the Talon is a radius from pommel to tip. Also pictured is the first Lynx, 3 1/2" handle, 2 1/2" blade . All are 5/32" O1.

    Yes , A friend asked me if I could make him a knife to give to his daughter. I thought this one would be a good one for her. Her favorite color is green.

    All three of those are outstanding. I hope to have all three styles one day.

    That Talon is absolutely stunning. Beautiful work. Do you make them in a flat grind or a convex? Because if you do we should talk.

    I have only been making them with a scandi grind. I hope to be doing some knives in the near future with convex grinds.
    Thanks

    All three of those knives look spectacular! What is the handle material on the Talon?

    I think I need to have one. I don't know which model but I will keep an eye out for when a knife comes up. Thank you, your work looks great.

    I found it. The Lynx would be the one.
