Hello John,

Welcome to iKnife Collectors!

Thank for the kind compliment. I am new here also & just love it. The members are so pleasant,hospitable & humorous. I miss them when I cannot get back for a few days. Its difficult to research the site as I seem to want to get on chat, as someone always has information that you are looking for & lead you to links where you can find more information.

I came here looking for information for my Moose Skinning Knife & have learned so much about it, that I just couldn't find any where else. I have got so hooked here I now would like to participate in working with knives in my engraving business.

Its a pleasure to meet you and I do hope you enjoy yourself as much as myself & many others. Peace & God Bless you & your family.

Borrowed from J. Mutz's webpage...hope he doesn't mind, since he's a member here and is making this year's iKC knife.

"Cotton Samplers were used by cotton buyers for cutting samples out of bales. These knives were advertised in the late 1800's as folding skinning knives and were usually handled in wood with curved jack handles. They have been discontinued by most knife manufacturers and are becoming very rare."

Yep, that Puma White Hunter was a really great knife. Mine saw a lot of use, both during my military service and for many years afterward, as well. Sadly, that knife just "disappeared" one day. I still get queasy thinking about its loss. I keep imagining that it's still here and that I just haven't found it yet. *sigh* But I know, deep down inside, that it's gone for good.

The only negative issue I observed with that knife, in the nearly 40 years of ownership, was the difficulty in sharpening it. That old Pumaster steel was an out n' out bear to sharpen! For me, at least. But once you got an edge it kept it for a good long time!
