Knife I made for a prize
« on: September 05, 2008, 04:29:38 PM »
This is a knife I made for the prize blanket at a up coming shoot. This month is sadly the last shoot of the year, and everyone is to bring a prize to the shoot.

Here are the details:

O.A.L. is 10.500 long, the Blade is 6.00 long made of O1 tool steel hardened to 59Rc. with a file worked blade. The scales are cherry with seven copper pins, and the sheath is made of 7oz. tooling leather.

Nice work and excellent attention to detail on your file work.    Someone is going to get one heck of a nice prize.   Our club Jefferson Co. Long Rifles is also having their blanket shoot this month.  I will miss it as i am doing the D.U. Pymatuning Waterfowl & Outdoor Exo. on the 20 & 21 this year.   We will skip October and then have the November Turkey Shoot.

That's about a perfect sized and shaped knife for everyday use and it really nicely done.

I recently meet a few guys from the Jefferson county long rifles at a local shoot at the Clairton sportsman's club in allegheny County last month. I wish I were better with names, but I believe one of the fella's was named Ray, and a pretty good shot also. I hope to make it up to one of your shoots sometime.

Great craftsmanship and detail.  Someone is going to be proud wearing this on their belt!
