Gunstock Wharnnie

Postby orvet » Sat Feb 02, 2019 7:57 am

Here is a knife I put together from parts. Since I do repair work I'm always looking for Schrade parts, in Camillus parts, so when I find them I buy them and sometimes it's years before I find a way to use them. The handles used which fit a 194OT, gunstock trapper. I think the handles were made close to the 100th Anniversary. I don't recall which series they went to, I am sure Tony or Michael will know.
The blade is from 877UH, the Pro-Skinner muskrat. The blade had the gut hook on the end originally. I used my Wen 10" slow wet stone to profile the blade flat across the bottom and I use my belt sander to remove the guthook, and lots of water to keep it cool.

The only used parts in the knife with a spring in center liner. If you look at the bottom of the knife you can see dings in the liner. That quite perfect but it makes an awesome EDC! I am really enjoying it!

That's a very good looking knife, Dale. How do you put your signature on? I like how clean it looks!

Very nice, Dale.
Everything about that knife is appealing. The blade shape and scales are very nice.

Thanks for sharing.

Love the pics and that knife Orvet, wow what a looker and one of a kind and the thing reminds me of a Northwoods Hawthorne, which I must say is a gorgeous elegant knife and wharn IMHO. Kudos to a great frankenknife. Hope you're bringing something like that to the OKCA show in Eugene in April. Sweet idea and craftsmanship. Great to see projects like that.
