"Western" knife rework


Dealer - Purveyor
while searching for other stuff in my lady friend's shed i found this basic sheath knife. around here if you asked someone for a hunting knife they will show you something similar to this. when found the blade was the color of the handle. knife is labeled WESTERN over USA, no model number stamped but it seems to be a L66. just doing a clean up. has been a good knife to practice sharpening. whoever had it before looks like they sharpened it using a bench grinder. i am not going to try and remove all pitting.

further cleaning revealed L66 stamped on the top of the brass guard. i am very happy with the steel and was able to get a good edge. found a store on ebay that has NOS Western blade blanks and i bought an L66 to put a handle on. i will also make my first sheath for this knife.
