Nice pack and terrific butcher knife. 

I would assume that you might have put a handle on that one.  I like the size and blade shape.   Useful I suspect.

Alright, I HAVE to ask......where in the world did you find a huge old Lamson & Goodnow butcher knife in that kind of condition?  I realize you replaced the scales and sanded the blade, but still.....

I've got old iron-pinned Green Rivers that I've found, fixed up and traded away, but NEVER an L&G! :'(

Picked up two L&G's at an estate sale up in Helena Mt....two were very old (a 7"and this one originally a 12") another one 14"unused piece (that i believe was probably made much later) off evil bay...all three are bullnosed butchers...oh yeah, i almost forgot....

  Once again... Outstanding share of your travels!
:thumbsup:


  Liked seeing the old ruck & some of the details, very cool! If ya get the chance & have the old connectors for the shovel & bayonet, I would like to see them.
:)


  That "sticker" of a knife was cool to see & the sheath ya made seemed to fit in with the look of the blade!
Nice work!
:)


And... Ya always know I like to see the travelin' pards go along!
:)


  Thanks for taking the time to share & looking forward to your next travel. I can't get enough of seein the lay of the land in them "flatlands"... LOL
;)


PS... No more slackin on the h2o.. You need it as much as your pards. Don't get angry with me... just jerkin on your chain a bit.
;)
I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)
