    Gunstock War Club

    Well, not a gunstock…but the shape…There is no evidence than Indians ever used gunstocks to make clubs… Maybe they saw a Euro whack someone with an empty gun..And there is some that say the shape predated the Euros entrance to America…Who knows, no-one left to ask… I’ve been having a lot...

    My “Quigley Down Under” Knife

    Back in 1990 Tom Selleck done the movie set in 1860 Australia. One of my favorites… His knife seemed a little to commercial to me for such a unique character but I did love the sheath made with a beaded moccasin toe stitched to it…… Here’s his.. I have had 4 “Cherokee Bowie” bare...

    Trade Knife

    This pic was saved as “Crow 1880″…A simple pouch sheath with some decorations… The knife was probably a ‘Green River” or similar, sharpened to death with some rawhide stitched over the old handle, maybe as a repair for split wood…These pics have intrigued me, who made it, who used it and...

    My Belt Bag for muzzleloader

    What do you do on your first day off in 10 weeks? Why scrape hides of course… A ton of work but it’s nice not to have to wait on others…. Hopefully all of the hides used next year will be mine…These will be rawhide…..Randy

    New/Old 'Hawk

    This ‘hawk head came to me in a trade and while I still can’t forge quite yet I can piddle with stuff so I put this one together. I didn't like the head so it got itself reshaped and done some filing on it. Didn’t like the “weeping heart” cutout on this one so I poured it with pewter. Haft is...
