Title: Starting off 2017
Post by: Mannlicher on January 10, 2017, 08:02:50 AM
I was contacted by my friend Tim Olt a week ago, and he said he was going to be making a few more knives soon in 154CM, a favorite steel of mine.  The blade will be shaped different from the one I got last fall, so I sent that knife back up to him, so he could duplicate the handle in that wonderful Antique Westinghouse Micarta.
Then I noticed that Rick Menefee out in Oklahoma was going to make some special knives, instead of just the boners, fillet knives and drop point hunters he is so famous for.  Larger knives with stag handles.
I threw in for a Loveless style Chute knife.  A2 Steel, Presentation grade Sambar Stag handles.  That is something I have wanted all my adult life, but never could have.  Might take a bit of time for that one, but it will be a beauty.

Those will be great.  I have looked at Menefee's work from time to time and like his drop point knives pretty well.  Pictures when you get it!

Here is the one from Tim Olt.  3.5 inch blade of  CPM 154 (5/32) at 61 RC.  Cryo treated x2   Nickle Silver guard and pin.   Antique Industrial Micarta handle.  Big and robust,  just like I ordered.  Sharp as a razor blade.  Beautiful fit and finish.
Since PhotoBucket went to hell,  I am trying Picture trail.

drop point with some belly.  Should be a good performer.

I know that you've been waiting on the one for a while.  Looks great.

in October,  I am road tripping out to Wyoming for a hunt.  Buddy of mine and I are going together.  A mutual friend is hosting us for a week, and we got this one for him as a "thank you" present.   Tim Olt made this one as well.  Same steel, but the handle is Sambar Stag.

Sweet, I'm sure he will love that one Sam.
Good luck on that hunt.

Nice! I like the angled ricasso on the stag one. Very sleek looking.
