Just keep it away from the lady of the lake!
The original had plastic 'bone' but now a rustic real one !!
Nice job Selous, I have a 'Blackjack' Bowie style knife that I started to 'make vintage' a while ago....maybe you've inspired me to finish the job!
Cheap Condor "Kephart" I handled and fabricated this scabbard for just after the holidays. They are cheap blades, but the sure hold an edge well!
Rite Edge and Sabre pocket knives:
Buck 120 knife:
Very nice Bushman, I like the little Sabre pocket knife, very tidy.
Thanks, I enjoy it at well! It's the one I carry around in my pocket for daily use. Very handy.
Was in the LGS a while back and this end of USA production Marbles Ideal 7" blade NIB was just laying on the shelf! Got it for a song. Got it home and made a new shoe for it!
Heres a trio of good woods companions!

Fit right in with the old 1920's camp of mine!!!
Opinels anyone ? Here's a 'site' on which French folk show their 'mods' :
There's a surprising (to me!) number of chaps who mess with these inexpensive blades! Google opinel modding/mods
Mr. E owns several, and he has collected knives for a long time now.
His knives from him are saved for special ocassions...
Really cool guy too!
that 'Santuko' is beautiful, bet it works well too! Well done!
Not usually a big fan of file work but this knife caught my fancy. I've had it for about 15 yrs and it still makes me smile
That's the one I want to give Mr. E for his birthday actually.
Gave this one last year
It's a thing of beauty

Hoping to find myself a nice traditional pocket-knife for my upcoming birthday, but in the meantime, I picked up this doovalackey at the local thrift-shop. It's got an ivory handle and a weird blade. Made by Joseph Rodgers & Sons in England during the reign of George V. Was made sometime between 1911-1929 (can't be more precise than that).
Does anybody have ANY idea what this type of knife would've been used for? So far as I can tell, the blade has not been altered, and it came with its original sheath.
Someone suggested it was a scalpel from a surgical kit from the WWI-era. I'm not entirely convinced.
The blade is a little different, but I have seen a couple of these knives offered as an "ink scraper" or "ink eraser."
I don't think it's an ink-scraper. I've seen LOADS of ink-scrapers. The size and shape of the blade just doesn't match.
