Jon,
I do remember that one. It's a nice piece. I sold it reluctantly, and I'm glad it has a good home. Happy

I've been meaning to post photos of my collection, atm this is my most recent piece. Reproduction of a 1918 Au Lion trench knife. Not perfect, but passable for my standards right now. Couldn't get the site upload to work, so hopefully this will:

Just got this one from Ryan Bandics out here in Vegas. He's a good man, great fighter and a wonderful knifemaker. Looks like he's starting his own sight boarstoothknives.com

My latest, an impulse buy from Arma Bohemia's holiday sale. I'd had my eye on one for a while, but at the holiday price, I couldn't pass it up. The file marks were very shallow and faint when it arrived. I went after it with my own files to make it bolder. I then polished it up so I could see the results. I can't wait for the grip to tarnish again. I may actually antique the heck out of the whole thing at some point.

Arma Bohemia based it off a knife in a private collection from the 13th-14th century:

An updated group shot from 3/15. Happy

Side by side, the size differences are interesting to me.

I have not been keeping up with this thread but I see a lot of neat stuff. Since my last post to this, I had kind of gotten obsessive with the EG Waterman knives and one of those is an eating set from the 1950s era I will also show some other EGW types and lastly an older stock picture of some of my fixed blade knives. One folder shown is a Vince Evans and a bowie by him. Another bowie in stag is from Kevin Cashen during his journeyman smith days. I have pictures of more of my folders but maybe that should be a separate thread. Last couple of years, along with the Waterman knives were gentlemans knives from Latama.

Cheers

GC

Waterman eating set and a couple of later models post WWII



The two primary EGW WWII patterns (there were others in that day)


Some fixed bladed modern knives including Randall, Blackjack, Gerber, Gilbreath, Deleon, etc


Vince Evans bowie


Vince Evans folder


Kevin Cashen bowie


DeLeon bowie


1970s Bone marked bowie (likely DeLeon ground)


I am ashamed to say I am not remembering who did the camp knife (a fellow in MA now doing fancy folders) but I had gifted that to a sister many years ago. The leather on both was from Tree Stump Leather (great guy!)

This thread reminded me of the knives I made years ago (10-11 years, how time flies!).
I got back into the hobby in the more recent years, but since then did no "historically inspired knives", just a few short sword and dagger and recently folder projects.

Anyway, these two knives were inspired by the CD I got back in 2003 with very high resolution pics and descriptions of actual knives excavated from Viking graves on the island Gotland.

One (brass sheath mounts, wooden handle wrapped in silver wire) is pretty much an exact copy of one of those knives. The blade I made from 1095. I still have this knife. Click Download below to see it.
The other (nickel silver mounts, composite handle with "Fehu" rune) is a prettified, modernized variation on the general type. The blade was a Brusletto carbon steel one, if I remember right. Sold it long ago.

Alex.
