Beavertail Hunting and Skinning knife....Sheath work Info

This is one of my custom order Beavertail Hunting and skinning

This one was ordered with a custom ferro rod to go with
the sheath.

The blade on these have a cross forged pattern as well as
the rear steel but end of the knife.  The spine is also file
worked (jimped).

Handle is Tiger maple with large brass pins and the
sheath was hand stitched with free hand tooled and carved
work on the face.

Sheath work Information.
As most of you know I  make knives for a living and also do a
deal of leather work.   All of my sheaths are hand worked and hand stitched by me.

I also stitch sheaths for other knives when I am asked.  I get a fair amount of
requests for sheath and custom leather tooling work.  Keep in mind if you
want me make a sheath for any knife I do need the knife shipped to me so I
can wet form the leather to the knife.  Nothing else will work, cardboard
cut outs, tracings wont make for a decent sheath.

Cross Forged Large Game knife by ML Knives

I have made a number of Cross forged pattern Knives
starting back maybe in 2003 and this design I started
offering in a Sporting Classics Magazine Ad a few
years ago if I remember right.

Called the Cross forged Large Game knife.

This knife is an excellent design and has a blade about
4 1/2" long with a file worked spine with tiger maple handle.
The blade also has 4 brass pins and brass lined rear
lanyard hole.

Sheath is hand stitched as all my sheaths.

Also the final video for the Country Bag is posted.

Thank you

a beautiful burl grain.  Also requested was a thinner 3/32"
spine and a pattern and Patina aged blade.

The sheath is one of my hand stitched custom dangler sheaths.
