I am just recently back from a trip to the Great White North (Toronto to be exact), so excuse my slow posting recently… When I was gone, we acquired a couple of nice hunting knives. The first is a set of two knives in a custom sheath by famous knife maker Sean McWilliams. They are hand-forged stainless steel (he is one of the very few to do this) and the handles are carved of fossilized Walrus Ivory. The smaller knife is for evisceration and the larger for skinning, and together they make a rare and beautiful set, worthy of the most discerning collector.
The other knife was made by Steve Barminski when he was producing knives in Craig, Colorado. It is a single knife in a custom sheath with a beautifully laminated wooden handle. Seeing that I am Colorado born and raised, this knife is my favorite, and is something that would go nicely in any woodsman’s christmas stocking.
