A New Knife
« on: March 18, 2017, 09:45:16 PM »
Got this one in the mail yesterday. The old man found it on the web and bought it for me. It cost him $27.00 plus shipping. A feller put in one bid after my buddy did, but then backed out. I feel it a steal for a hand made knife of this quality and character.

He thought I needed a CSA knife to go with one of my CSA revolvers when he came across it. So with that, the original butcher knife that I have been carrying on my Griswold and Gunnison belt rig is getting set aside.

I just finished up making a sheath for this knife tonight.

This knife is really a neat piece and well made. I took a real liking to it as soon as I got my hands on it. The brass guard was hammered to shape on the ends. The end cap is pewter. It has lots of honest patina. I suspect it was a Re-enactors knife, but where ever it came from, it has seen some use, but was well cared for.

I agree, very nice knife. It couldn't have gone to a better home.
