Gary Mulkey Posted April 12, 2019 Share Posted April 12, 2019 (edited) This is what I would consider my first knife which I had considered to be long gone until I recently uncovered it in a box of junk, hidden in a back corner of my shop where it has rested for the last thirty years. The blade was forged from some high carbon, WWII armor plating. The handle is from some black walnut & hickory that I laminated and the fittings brass. You can see how the hickory has darkened over the years on the back half of the handle from exposure from the pouch type sheath. (I have no idea of what I used for the white handle spacer.) This one is quite crude and the blade geometry poor but it managed to field dress a couple of deer before I retired it to a forgotten hiding place in a back corner of my shop. I think that it's good to see something like this once in a while just to remind you of how you got started and hopefully have progressed over the years.
