I've had it in my head to do a trapping themed knife. I've got some cool elements to include this time: original Schrade trapper blades, a vintage Newhouse trap spring given to me by famous photographer Wyman Meinzer, an antique trap tag, and a set of coyote jaws.

Here’s me and Mr. Meinzer. He gave me the trap spring, I gave him a copy of my book.

I ended up making a deal with another knifemaker, Bubba Crouch. I'm going to make the steel and a bowie, and he's going to make a slipjoint trapper that we'll try to sell as a set.

This project should take a few months. My first attempts at welding up the blades was a failure, so I took my show on the road.

Here's a video I shot about the first steps. I put the Schrade blades in a canister with 1095 powder, and the trap spring in a can with 1080+nickel powder.



Next I'll send Bubba his steel and figure out what I'm going to do with the bowie. More progress over the next few weeks.

Here are a few preliminary drawings. Haven’t made up my mind yet.
