I was doing a little research on some older knife styles and decided to make a couple of Nessmuks.

A little history on the Nessmuk. George Washington Sears was a real old-time woodsman who lived to hunt, fish, and camp. He was a writer whose stories appeared in Forest and Stream in the 1800's.

A young Indian whose tribal name was Nessmuk, taught him woodcraft when George was a small boy. In later years, when he started writing for publication, he used the name Nessmuk in greatful memory of his Indian teacher of the long ago.

Made these out of 01 steel and decided to do a piggy back sheath set up as well. Scales are stabilized California buckeye burl.

Very cool Russell. That shape looks like it would make great "working" blade on game. I bet that top one feels perfect in the hand. Beautiful scale material too.

Thanks guys, they were fun to make and they do feel good in the hand Kevin. Going to have a hard time parting with these if I decide to sell them.

Thanks everyone, and for those of you asking about the price, if I list them for sale it will probably be around $275 for the pair.

I make them when I have time, it's a hobby for me and not a job.
These take much longer than when I use factory ground blades, so I don't do as many hand ground as I do production blades.
