New Package Arrived in the Mail Today
« on: August 15, 2018, 02:44:04 PM »
A package arrived in the mail today that I have been anxiously awaiting for a while. It came from a location deep in the Tennessee mountains.



From a well loved maker here on Blades and Bushlore:



An absolutely gorgeous remake of the Colclesser / Kephart Knife from Sarge











My pictures don't do it much justice, it's a great looking knife and sheath. Thanks Mike for such a beautiful piece of art and craftsmanship.

I'll be taking it with me on a trip to Naples, FL this weekend and hope to put it to good use and hopefully some better pictures.

I will be thrilled if mine looks like that.  Really nice Yak.

Beautiful knife.

True enough Greg.  I really like the materials Mike is using, and I like the knife being true to the original style.  I had to order one.   😜
