Two of the latest knives
« on: October 15, 2021, 12:45:14 AM »
One is a rather large bowie and the other a bone handled rifleman’s knife.

 Those are really good looking, I especially like the smaller one, how long is that blade and what is the bolster made of?

   Thanks, Tim

Drooling over the smaller one. Great lines.  I love that guard too.  How do you have time for knives in between rifles?   😉

Thank yall, the bolsters are pewter and I believe the smaller knife had a blade length or 7 1/2” or 8”.

Very nice.  I like both but something about the longer one intrigues me.

Beautiful work, Robert…durned if that longer one isn’t almost a hunting sword!  I like ‘em both!
