A Couple of Rustics

A Couple of Rustics - 03/29/19 04:30 PM

Both were made from an old sawmill blade that I got from a guy in east Texas. Both heat treated and tempered to right at 60 HRC. Both are hair popping sharp!

This one is an EDC sized knife at 6 1/2" overall and 2 5/8" tip to scales. Scales are stabilized spalted Hackberry with bright yellow liners with stainless Corby bolts and lanyard tube.

This one is my light skinner model thats 7 3/4" overall and 3 1/4" tip to scales. Scales are stabilized English Walnut that came from one of my trees that the bad drought killed 8 or so years ago. Bright red liners and stainless Corby bolts and lanyard tube.

Thanks Jes, my Dad and I planted that tree 4 days before he had died from a massive heart attack. I put it in the classifieds but if it doesn't sell I'll just keep it.
