Stag handle knife was of my design. Made for me in 1969 by Steve Meyer of Alvin, Texas. I had sent pattern to several
Knife Smiths, they wouldn't make such weird blade. This was before big custom knife boom. Knife only has 4 1/2" blade.
It's heavy, 3/8" spine/ false edge on top for cleaver. 440HC blade, Sambar stag with desert agate. It's the sharpest knife
I've ever owned. It's helped many a critter out of it's birthday suit. I don't like to carry it any more so I made "30/30"knife
out of industrial chipper blade HC steel. Black Walnut handles and 30/30 brass for fasteners. ImageUploadedByRuger Forum1420693386.453197.jpg ImageUploadedByRuger Forum1420693415.907538.jpg

Knife making

There are several knife makers supply outfits on line. The one that comes to
mind is Jantz. All the wholesale knife distribs, like Smokey Mt. And Frost have
some listed. I make all my blades from carbon steel. I use saw blades, files and
Other industrial type blades. Handle materials are all wood or deer antler. Brass
hand guards and butts. Right now I'm making Bowie out of a piece of Simmons
Tool Steel. Came in package 3x16. Came from old machine shop that has been
closed since 60s I do all work with files to avoid ruining temper.
Sheaths made from Farmers Repair package of scrap odds and ends sold at
local HWD store.

Milling with a file is a lot of work and time consuming. I do the same thing.
