Mike McRae was a great bladesmith that was inspired by the knives of Scotland. Sadly he no longer smith's. We have 4 other pieces of his (including one of his master-smith submissions), but we never got one of his dirks. It was the first knife Sunday from the Sprit of Steel show.
This is Pat Crawford monohandle one hand knife dating from 30+ years ago. The design is one of the seminal knives that became the ubiquitous one hand openers we carry. It was the last knife from Sunday at the Spirit of Steel show.

A little bit late, but... Stag has pores, something like oak or walnut, but not quite - you can see them on the ground off section on the handles. And it tends to get sticky as you hold it for a couple of minutes, especially if your hands are a little bit damp from sweat. That is if it's not varnished.
Nice knife at a nice price.
'Couple of classic Italian switchblade. One horn swing-guard and the other toggle stag.
Can I ask what these ran you? I’ve been wanting something like this for awhile now
I was the winning bidder at a DU banquet table auction. One of those paid to much but goes to a good cause....
I got a deal so it wouldn't reflect buying them accurately. Work like this can be $75-$150 each.
Wow that’s surprisingly affordable in my opinion.
It can be much more, but standard examples are on Etsy in that range.
I got both these for $70 at the auction.
That is a good looking knife! Is it D2?
Carothers Performance Knives Signature edition Super Duty Field Knife in Delta protocol CPM3V with double-black linen micarta scales and leather by Chad Pirtle of Pirtlemade with a Mummert Ti clip. 7" blade.
A lot of blade, super light, the perfect gentleman’s knife.
Dad taught me that a gentleman always carries a sharp knife, a handkerchief, & a handgun.
This is my first "neck knife" -- although the Boltaron sheath can be configured for belt carry in multiple orientations (default is vertical carry).
So far, I like the ergonomics... The highly corrosion-resistant LC200N steel is a nice "feature."
Everyone here is extolling the virtues of their inexpensive Mora’s, so I picked up a pair to keep in the cars, just because.
Tried one, shaved the hair on the back of my hand, pretty sharp as far as I’m concerned. Under $25 for the pair, delivered, in stainless.
First Mora I’ve bought since I got that wood handled one in Sweden about 50 years ago. Still no rust, when they say stainless they mean it.
Can anyone tell me what that "button" is for on the front of the sheath?
