    Sid Bell, knifemaker

    I don't know if he was an engraver too. I did find a Sid Bell who was a silversmith up in Alaska in my search but this friend of mine says he was from Lubbock, TX. I haven't seen these two knives she has but on my next visit, I'll check them out.

    I've seen this also on ebay. I just won't bid any higher than what I think it's worth. Hopefully I left the seller as high bidder on his own item!:9:

    Fish pond...

    My gf has about 4 frog & 3 turtle ceramic figures around her pond and another 3 'real' frogs and 1 'real' turtle in the pond. You have to be careful where you step! :1: This is a photo of her self-built pond at her place. Has to be about 1000 gallons. She has since removed all the...

    Fish pond...

    I fed him some cement & he's been like that ever since. :biggrin: Good luck with your water feature. It is really relaxing to sit out there & hear the water trickle. Looking to build a waterfall next. You can really get carried away with these ponds.

    A question about wood

    Just an update... I bought 4 more of these type of knives made in India. While not that expensive, I was 'hooked' on the carvings. Very few sellers knew what type of wood was used but my best guess after searching all the descriptions I could find is Sheesham (Indian Rosewood) and Teak.

    Fish pond...

    No fish yet but it will be inhabited by goldfish soon. The gf has about 40 goldfish in her pond and her daughter just recently spotted a 2" turtle in her pond... probably a snapping turtle.

    A question about wood

    I picked this knife up at an antique store about a week ago. I knew it was made in India but I can't find any information about what type of wood may have been used for the handle or sheath. Anyone want to hazard a guess? I'm thinking it might be mahogany, sandalwood, satisal, or teak but I'm...

    Another Wildlife Mystery

    Next trip to the stream go to the side where you heard the noise and look for any signs of beaver. Maybe a large beaver was trying to scare an intruding beaver away. Or maybe there are exceptionally large bullfrogs jumping off the bank. Just a thought.
