The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
My very first knife, which I made going on... 29? 30 years ago.
Young guns had recently been out, and I really liked the way Chavez's(?) (played by Lou Diamond Phillips) bowie looked at the time.
I wanted to make a knife, but figured since it was my first one, I would make plenty of mistakes, causing the blade to get smaller and smaller.
I did have a touch of tip curl, but other than that, the blade remains 'full size'.
¼" thick A2 tool steel. 13 3/4" long; 1 pound 1 ounce.
I have learned so much about leather work since I made that sheath. The stamped design was done with the filed down head of a 16 penny nail for crying out loud. LOL.
The wood on the handle is black walnut that came from a tree that blew down on my great grandma's place in Arkansas.
