WTS Knives
« on: February 13, 2019, 06:23:32 PM »
Here are three knives that are offered for sale.  Priced at $20 each which of course includes the sheaths.  Shipping will be calculated based on your location and will be the actual shipping cost.  No charge for packaging since I have plenty of stuff around to deal with that.  If all three are sold to the same shipping address, the cost will be $50 plus shipping.

All of these knives have "been there and done that".  They have staining on the blades which is from actual use on big game kills.

Here is the first knife.  This is a Russel Green River boning blade with cocobolo scales.  The scales are partially heartwood and partially sap wood.  The sap wood is not soft.  It holds right up with the heartwood.  The sheath is veg tanned leather.

Next up is a Russel Green River "sheath knife".  Also with cocobolo scales.  This knife has served very well when skinning animals of the deer and elk size.  I also carried this knife on the strap of my shooting bag and used as a patch knife when shooting in matches or doing woods walks.

The last is a blade sold as the "South Platte".  I'm not sure who makes this blade but it was stocked by Track of The Wolf.  The scales on this knife are teak.  And, no, that is not a crack in the scales it is a natural part of the woods grain.

That was quick and the blades alone are pricey now laid in with shipping going up...

They were fine looking knives, Mike, I just had built those same TOTW RGR blades myself and now have more then I'll likely use since moving to this hunting wasteland...

glad they sold quickly... nice sheaths too!

Mike,

Those are FINE looking knives and the purchaser shot me a note so they'll get a good home!

I was tempted, but realistically, having several of the GR from TOTW, it didn't pencil on paper and I'm glad he who got them got them! :)
