Love the texture on the bolster!


Nice work. Pigs beware!




"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Beauty and function both. I'm with Dave, the bolster texture is mesmerizing.

That should get the job done. Actually we have people who hunt feral hogs with dogs and knives in the States where in some localities are a major ecological, health, and safety hazard. That and trapping are about the only ways to remove them from suburban areas.



HELP...I'm a twenty year old trapped in the body of an old man!!!

I'm with everyone else on this one, that bolster and guard are fantastic! I'd call it "Hogslayer", may the great bacon dance commence! B)

I love the smell of Anthracite in the mornin'!

I really like the ferrule above the guard. The whole thing is good, of course. looks formidable but refined (what I think we wish we all were...).


thanks for showing.

Richard--Your pig sticker is a real winner in the high end using knife.

Sheath, blade steel and shape is good. Guard is good.

The whole package is great.
