Self-Made Knives / Re: Kephart Saga

Agree that these are very nicely done. Gifts made by the giver have a special place in the scheme of things as well.

Nice looking knives Estacado.  Good interpretation of the Nessmuk.  The little Kephart is interesting and would be a good game knife.

Self-Made Knives / Kephart Saga

Since I first posted, I am now up to 45 knives finished. The latest delivered was this Saturday. Now, if I can navigate picture posting again I'll post my latest. The last three were given to friends of fifty years, guys I flew F-4s with in Viet Nam. A couple of Kephart's and a Nessmuk Skinner. My knives have been used on Deer, Hogs, and a Black Bear. One fellow also butchered a Steer. They have been given as gifts to Sons and Grandfathers. I gave the second one I made to my Sister. The three I'll try and post are a five inch Kephart with dyed Maple scales. Then a Nessmuk 4.5" blade with Maple scales. The od one is my design of a Baby Kephart with a 3.5" blade and Walnut scales.

I have sold about ten knives so far.  Some locally but most on Ebay or other forums.  The problem is that I took some in trade, bought a couple new ones, and could not bear to part with some others.

I will let my heirs worry about this.

Thanks for sharing and looks like a fun trip, marked the area on my Google maps for a visit.

For light hammocks I picked up on hammock forums a used Streamliner from Simple Light Designs for $25. It's a great hammock for backpacking but not fun trying to sit in due to the cat cuts on the long edges of the hammock.

I forget what the name of the material is.  It is a synthetic material that is poured.  I have played around with making my own, but haven't been crazy with the results.........yet .

Too much stuff?  I just installed a new shed in the back yard for the overflow.
