Default My new 3/4 Old Hickory custom made knife

A couple of years ago I purchased a hand made knife from a local craftsman that has turned into just about my favorite sheath knife. He made it from old sawmill saw blade steel and he does great work with the handles. The design is kind of a 3/4 sized Old Hickory and it's a stout knife. He leaves part of the blade in the rough as a residual from it's sawmill blade heritage.

I've liked it so well the past couple of years I asked him a couple of months ago if he'd make me another one. Since he makes his knives one at a time each knife has it's own uniqueness based on the steel he had available and the various burl for handles he said he'd make another as close to the first one as possible.

The knife pictured below with the lighter colored handle is the one he made for me a couple of years ago. The handle is made from stabilized spalted mable burl and has a very unique design that I'm fond of. The other knife is the new one I just picked up from him and the handle is made from stabilized spalted pecan burl. It's different but just as unique as the first one and he did a great job.

I've probably bought a dozen knives from him including several small game skinners I gave to both my sons and my father, as well as one I kept for me. I think I prefer a hand made sheath knife as opposed to a off the shelf mass produced commercial model.
