William Scagel knives


Well-Known Member
I’m amazed at the work this maker accomplished back in the day. He must have been a character. Hated electricity and did most of his work with handmade tools.
Evidently his knife work is what inspired Bo Randall to start making knives.
I believe some of Scagel knives go for 4 and 5 $k, some much higher.
His work is definitely unique. I’m beginning to reall appreciate his work as an artist and skilled craftsman.
There are several makers that do Scagel style knives. I think I may try one soon.
Here is an example of his work.6894CB69-20FA-4842-8FE0-D6750394A444.jpg
