Had a fellow wanting a deer shin bone handled knife done my old way and this is what I came up with. 4" 52100 blade, the usual wrought iron fittings and a premium deer shin bone for a handle. 8" overall.

Looks great as usual Ray. So my question is, did you make the blade match the shin bone, or pick a shin bone for the blade?

Great Knife, Ray! I loved your Scandi's but this does look more like your past work.

Dave, This was a blade that I had on hand so it was more finding the bone that would work the best with blade.

I like it! :D

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! If the weather keeps up, it could turn out to be more like Christmas, at least the way it is out here right now. I have a good three inches of snow....

Peter, no snow here, just wet and waiting for it to turn to ice. I'm ready for a heat wave.

I wish everyone a great Thanksgiving!

Dave,

I just noticed your signature quote. I lol'd so loud I almost woke up my wife.

"Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?"

Others on the forum can probably explain it better, but,
that knife he carried must have been the proper steel, grind, heat treat , quenchant, temper, edge geometry and sharpening combination to keep him clean shaven. :biggrin:

(I think I woke up too early this morning, I'm going back to bed)

When I was a senior in high school I had mastered the tarzan call. You could hear it for miles. :D

Raymond,

I don't think I could hear it from here, but if you want to try I'll give 'er a listen.

And all this time I thought that was Bigfoot yelling up in the woods that was keeping me awake at night! :D

Bigfoot would poo its pants if I could still produce my Tarzan yell........

Dave, I no longer have the voice range I had at 17. Nor the hair and a few other things. I can't even grow a decent beard anymore.
