Well rifle season starts next Saturday. Looking forward to spending time in deer camp and cooler weather. It's been so dry and hot that we've not had but one campfire in the 7 months or so.

great thread! I really like that Olt Buffalo Skinner. I just looked him up. Looks like his shop is in Grand Haven Michigan? I was stationed there about 20 years ago when I was in the Coast Guard. Was that knife a custom order?

Tim is an old Special Forces guy from the 'Nam era.

He has a number of blade patterns and to my knowledge makes knifes to order based on those patterns in a different steel each run.
He posts as "MichiganRoadKill on 24hr campfire, mostly in the knife/blade forum there.

I've also asked him to do several "one-off" knives.

Here is a re-creation that Tim did of the KOA "Muskrat".

IIRC I spoke with four different custom makers of my acquaintance and he was the only one that cared enough to try.
I am a fan of Buffalo horn.

I've quite a few knives from different makers. I'm a user/colletor and muddy boar's play heck on knife edges.

I'd say the edge retention on his blades are on par with the best.

thank you for the great reply! He does some really outstanding work. I'm going to reach out to him. The Muskrat re-pro is really cool. I've used the KOA one to skin out a few capes. Great knife, great design. I'm thinking I need a buffalo horn handled knife.

thanks again.

I personally prefer high carbon steel over stainless of any kind. I got a bunch of industrial hacksaw blades some years back. Hard to sharpen, takes work to hone, and has to be kept clean and dry to keep from rusting. But, it takes and holds an edge better than any stainless.

However, when my wife wanted new steak knives, the blades came from Jantz and I added craft wood handles with brass pins. I’m not good at serrating.
