I would like to both thank and apologize to Mark and Matt for not getting this posted earlier, though I have only have had it for 4 days having received it on the 23rd. I asked Mark to reproduce a knife that I had a drawing of and I have to say that he and Matt did a great job of doing it. Without further ado here is my other Christmas present to myself. If anyone is thinking of having a project done the boys at Ollin are top notch and do a great job at a reasonable price.







The grip is made of antler. I do not currently have the measurements for the knife. I will get them up as soon as I can.

Thank you Roger. I figured I deserved it after how my year started out and kind of saved up to try and do this for myself. I just happened to get lucky to have the two projects completed and in my hands when I did. Of course now I do not know when I will be able to get anything else. Sad If the economy picks up who knows though. Big Grin

Nice it sort of has a mid 19th century look of a dagger like spearpoint Bowie, although Bowie knives generally tend to be larger blades types.

Hard to tell from the pics but I'm guessing an 7" to 9" blade based on the size of the grip ( Unless it's a really big and thick grip or a tiny TINY grip, then my estimate could be wrong. Wink ).

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

In part that is what I was going for with this piece Jean. I am hoping that it could be used with the proper sheath for anywhere from say 1300 up until the mid 19th century. The first thing my wife thought of when she saw it was a Scottish dirk.

You have a good eye for size. The blade is in the middle of your guess at 8".
