    Classy rendition of a classic pattern. Your mark looks good, too. Homerun!

    I think that I need to check the fit. Looks GREAT! My favorite hunting knife. My first hunting knife.

    I packed one of those around during my teenage years. growing up in southern Indiana....ran my trap line with it always on my side. A classic pattern, and very nicely done!

    Thanks for all the kind words.
    I cannot take credit for the sheath I bought it from a maker on ebay.
    His name is S. Scott. It is nice heavy duty leather with a full welt, all I did was
    wet fit it to the blade.It worked out perfect.
