Hi! My name is David, I am 11 years old. I have been hunting with my Dad, Steve (rainshadow1) since I could walk. I shot my first coyote two years ago. (I haven't shot a Cougar yet, but I've been on many stands.)

I have always loved making knives with my Dad since about five years ago.

This knife is a straight razor cleaver style. The overall length is 10 1/8 inches, The cutting edge is 5 5/8 inches. The blade is 1 1/8 inches deep and 1/8 inch thick. The handle is really pretty maple with brass pins. The blade is made out of a nicholson file.

It is the first knife I forged, but I have made a few others. I wanted the knife to look a little older so I didn't grind all of the forge marks off. The quench on the knife went really well. I got a few bends in the knife but I got them to straightened out.

The sheath design is a bear walking down a trail. The sheath also has a belt loop, and a strap with a brass snap button to keep the knife in the sheath.

I am going to auction this knife starting at a dollar. It will run from now until Monday Feb 5th at 5:00 pm Pacific time.

Thank you, and thanks to the Predator Masters moderators for accepting me as a hobby call maker!

David

David can accept mailed payments, or I can use my paypal for him, or we could even do my credit card processing through my food business. Thanks guys! He did a great job on this and did all the work himself, right down to the sheath stitching. I only directed occasionally. Good steel and he did a good job heat treating, it's going to be a good performing knife.
