Re: Sawn Bone Brass Bolster Single Blade Barlow Style by ?????

For sure a home made handle. I suspect the blade is a repurposed factory blade. The nail nick is too good given the rest of the knife. Although still an interesting knife.

Still available, sacrifice price $1000 shipped. Just talked to my gunsmith and he’s not willing to take my 1st born to cover the bill. Call me a motivated seller.

My bit of a gathering , Fairbairn Sykes a 2 model on far left, 3rd models. Western L 76 than Western L 77’s and far right Ariel Dagger. The L 76 is a tough knife to find.

Thanks for posting the link. Surprised someone has not at least shown one off from their collection. George made a lot of knives in his long career.

Found Jean Case Cut Co Little Valley NY knife. Woodcraft pattern blade. Went to a black powder rendezvous over the weekend. Thru the years have found some good knives in such venues.

Fantastic examples! I have seen these before with the lanyard "ring" attached to the end of the knife. The top example is the first I can recall seeing with the bail/shackle put through the scale and liner. Do you have any insight into why the top example has the "through the scale a...

Re: Ojibwe Knife?

Great picks of smachet and love the Stone made knife. The fur trade era knives also known as Beaver Tail knives. Designed for a single purpose much like the Fairburn Sykes of WW 2. Purely a weapon.

Not at all frivolous, just ask my wife! A bit curious about your maker mark. Could interpret as a cross or deer track. And maybe it’s both.
