    My "Sackett" Bowie

    Back in '79 Sam Elliott stared along with Tom Selleck in a movie called the "Sacketts". One of my all time favorite westerns...Elliott played "Tell Sackett" and carried a huge Bowie in a shoulder sheath...I've wanted to do one for a long time...Here's Sam with his....



    Mine is the version after he spent time with the friendly Indians....
    15″ overall with 10″ sharp x 2″ deep….
    Forged from a ’40′s Rio truck spring on charcoal, quenched in water…No electricity used..
    Bolster poured from pewter and non-lead fishing weights….
    Handle is from a big whitetail….
    Sheath is rawhide deer over veg-tan with an egg tanned Elk cuff and fringe…..
    Shoulder belt is from an old hunting bag I made and didn’t like so it got its-self re-used…No dye on the sheath… dirt, grease and varnish with a few beads…












    Kind of loses something with the 2013 attire but ya get the point......

    I think that's the best looking blade I've seen from you, Randy. I really like that one. And the leather is top-notch for sure.

    That's one heck of a Scapler you have made there. A bit of a Fur Trade into the Hawkins rifle era look to it!
    I like that,

    Randy,
    I like your taste in movies and I just might like your take on this knife and sheath better than the original. VERY NICE!!!!!!!!
