You requested a pic of the knife featured in my latest post in the Conversion topic. I took two pics of the knife to share with you and posted them here, rather than include them with the original topic. I have a bunch of buddies in the Northwest that practice rudamentary blacksmithing skills and therefore I occasionaly obtain new pounded knives to meet my desires and tastes.
This one is a basic blade with a one piece scale built by one of my Montana buddies. No frills or fancy art work added. It is made from an old farrier's rasp. These old rasps, along with the old files, make for good knifes. They have just the right carbon content to them to make me happy. These types of knives are all that I use on the game animals that I harvest. I made the sheath from some scrap buffalo hide that I had on hand.
Thanks for the inquiry. I like to share the works of some of my artisan friends. They are a unique and dying breed. They make some neat stuff in their back yards and small sheds. I am honored to be included in their circle.
