Craig Wheatley was kind enough to make us a couple of steak knives awhile back.

Unfortunately life got in the way and only this week we had time to try them out. CPM 154 steel at HRC 60-62. Very comfortable walnut handles and they cut effortlessly.

content,

I do not believe there is a frog for the Patton saber as it was not worn on the person but attached to the saddle. You might note how long it is and try to imagine wearing that from a waist belt! The Giant Toy letter opener of a sword with the silly acid etched blade is worn from belt when a show sword is needed.

The non US made machete I have cam in a sheath like the plastic one with metal throat you have assume it has belt hooks on the back and a flat metal spring in the metal throat to help retain the blade in the sheath.

Nice collection!

Thanks for sharing it with us.

took out Frog... closest consistent reference I can find for the multiple ways of attachment are "Saber straps" more for different saddles, rather than the sword itself.

Yep

But, each hand ground knife is a "one of a kind" anyway. Some are just MORE one of a kind than others and that's one of those.

Here is a reproduction of the so called "Colonial Penny Knife" that I made last spring. It was roughly patterned after one I saw at the National Museum of the American Revolution circa 1775-1800. It features a turned rosewood handle, steel bolster, and period correct blister steel for the blade. The story goes that these were mass produced in Europe and shipped all over the world. They supposedly cost 1 penny to purchase in England, and colonial merchants would charge 2 cents in the colonies. Neat story, whether it is true or not is open to debate. Blister steel was about the lowest grade of carbon steel produced in that era and seemed appropriate for a inexpensive folding knife of the period.





Despite its basic construction, it actually is a very decent, light weight, pocket knife and takes and holds a keen edge. The thin blade is perfect for light duty cutting chores.

Beautiful work, 44-henry! I am curious: did the museum allow you to examine the knife up close and personal, to obtain dimensions and construction details?

Hello, no I was not able to handle the original, but I did talk to the staff at the museum about it over the phone. I was able to get basic dimensions from other research and more or less used the one at the museum as a guide. The handle is different in material, I used rosewood, but the original was probably beech, maple, or some other relatively plain and dense wood.

It does look a bit like a bedpost I guess.

Bed post or not, that looks great and you should be proud of having made it.

I will drop my two pennies in an envelope for it any time!

I started collecting knives because I thought it would be more affordable than collecting firearms. Besides, I already had several that were users. Who knew it was a sickness? These are some from the Dawson Clan.
