    Handmade camp knife

    A mate of mine makes knives.
    He decided both he and I needed knives for using when out and about.
    This is mine.

    Made from a circular saw blade that he was able to date from the makers mark (circa 1880's)

    The catch system will be replaced in time.
    It kept getting caught walking through the scrub, so I'll make a snap catch for it.

    Apart from that it is very useful and a decent size/weight.

    Cheers
    Will

    That is a useful sort of knife and looks good and strong. Over the years have found all sorts of pieces of metal in and around old gold mines. Would love to make a replica early colonical type blade out of some these pieces of old steel but alas have no skills or even a rudimentary metal workshop.
