Hi guys,
Here is another of my blades, the Browning model 65 (one of one thousand).

I love those stag handles!



Here is the detail of the file work at the handle.



Cheers

Gidday Tracker, how are you mate?

When you say half that price....is that half the aussie price or half the Buck website price?

Cheers, Vince

It's about half the Aussie price most places Vince, and our $$ usually exchange pretty closely, one has to check on the $$ market.

Welcome soil.

Nice knives Watchmaker.
I normally don't use fancy ones like you pictured, but the shapes and looks kinda trip my trigger.
If you want to get rid of that "ugly" Buck Knife, just let me know. I'll be happy to take it off of your hands. Very Happy

Eric

see now i like those ingram knives, they look like they would really work for me!! as far as anything with the gut hooks on them, i have yet to find one that i like save for the ummm i cant remember the name, ahhh a wyoming knife? i think thats the name of it, two finger hole jobber.. it works easier for me cause when you pull the gut hook side it accually cuts from undernieth the skin instead of straight end on.. but this is just me Smile I modified the gut hook on the cross lock i carry so it is more of a angle > instead of the C so it cuts quicker for me now... and zip ties-- fugetaboutit

If, when...if ever I loose, break, or otherwise ruin the blade I made for myself, I'd source an Ingram as an option to building another one.

D2, walnut and brass, performs everything I expect a knife to do from slippin' guts to butchering to kitchen work.......

Years ago I was invited to join a German hunting club in the Catskills, which had access to huge woods and was managed for quality deer. The members hunted from hotchsits and performed the "last meal" ceremony in the deer they got, all very proper and traditional Teutonic customs.

To "fit" in I dusted off my Mannlicher style Mauser 30-06 rifle and bought a White Hunter II Puma knife.

Here is it.



Best

windswalker: the blade in your photo reminds me of the type of knife used by many experienced hunters. Not too long a blade, a good handle and totally pragmatic.

My new Gene Ingram (Short Cut, S30V steel) arrived early this week. He fashioned a nice sheath in horizontal carry and I look forward to using it as soon as possible. In the interim, I test some of the blades by cutting hemp rope, 2" diameter. If anything will dull a blade, hemp will do it quickly. The Short Cut does a superb job.

There is no secret to making high quality blades. It is about steel selection and tempering. To work the steel requires some skill. I prefer a chisel style blade rather than hollow ground based on the recommendations of knfe makers I respect. Tempering the steel is where good blades distinguish themselves from run of the mill or mediocre blades.

IMO, a good blade can be bent to 30 degrees or more (place the knife in a vise and bend the blade either way) and return without weakening or breaking. Many blades are far too brittle and will break in such a test. Ingram's blades pass that test easily, as do Strider, Randall, Ruana and Morseth among my accumulation of blades.

Blades I prefer will dress quickly and hold an edge well. Sharpening angles shouldn't be too shallow and, yet, the blade should be able to cut quickly and smoothly, which is why I use hemp as a test material. Some blades will dull after three or four cuts, but the aforementioned blades will go ten to fifteen cuts before any noticeable dulling.

For the money and service, Gene Ingram is one of the most undervalued knife on the market. Again, IMHO. High quality blades make a difference.

It has been very remiss of me for not publicly thanking our mate Morax for offering to assist me in the purchase of a Buck knife.

As some would know I have been looking at knives for some time now. I happened to see a Buck 4" Omni Hunter in a store over here in Australia, priced at $135 aussie dollars.....way out of my reach. Anyway, to cut a long story short...Morax offered to be a go between for me and purchase the knife in the USA because none of the outlets mailed to Australia. We came to an amicable arrangement and sealed the deal, although I feel a little guilty cause I think I got the better end of the deal.

I am now the proud owner of a Camo Buck Omni Hunter 12pt. Thanks Jeff, you are a bloody champion mate. Very Happy

Cheers, Vince

Vince, Did you get the folding or fixed blade model? The Omni Hunter looks like a really good knife for the $35 to 40 USD. What features of the Omni Hunter helped you decide on that model. As you can see by the newbie questions, I am new to skinning and butchering my on game.
