Pitchy, great knives. I really like the green river with white scales and the small folders. I'll get some pick of mine if I ever get off work this weekend.

Thanks, that knife was made by a friend of mine in TX, i cut the blade from an old saw blade with my plazzy and sent it to him. He finished it and put bone slabs on it. We were down there last year and he gave it to me as a gift. :)

Pitchy thanks for the pictures, your bowie's and your ulue's are especially good. I see you throw knives too, that reminds me I have a pair of hand made throwing knives I should dig out one of these days so I can put up a picture of two of them. They were made by a dear old friend of mine for me as a gift after we threw knives together one day.

I thought of that but I liked the wood so I put it on with brass pins instead of aluminum !

That's some nice stuff Pitchy!

What kinda forge do you use? Anvil? I make a few stock reduction knives (grind away what aint a knife) but never got around to teaching myself forging. Looks like it would be fun, and possibly frustrating to learn.

All those knives except the bowie and RR knives are cut out of saw blades or files and ground to shape.
My forge is a old coal forge and 100 or so lb anvil.

Thanks, my best knife is what i call the Pitchy knife, the one with the burl oak handle, more than a few gents are using those from the ML board. If i was to suggest something to myself the bevel on the blades should be ground back a lot furthur but i get a little lazy sometimes. ;D

That pitchy knife of yours would do. That type of blade has been around for a long time. A great all around knife.Itd look neat,in one of the older style sheaths.
