    Default Theater Made stag horn Knife

    Picked this up for my son today.

    A beast at 17 1/2 inches (45 cm). That said it is very well balanced.

    Both the blade and the guard are made out of files/rasps. Nice hefty stag horn grip with brass pins and a nice engraved end cap.

    Appears to be engraved SAL near the cross guard.

    Date: ????? Not really sure but IMHO pre-WW2 quite possibly WW1 or before.

    Wow Michael,
    That's quite a knife. It's impossible to date but ithas a real 1800s
    look to it. The blade shape and crossguard look like some of massive
    civil war bowies.

    My personal hunting knife is a stag handled piece made from a file.
    If you look at it in the right light, you can still make out where it
    was stamped "bastard". Makes me wonder why my B-I-L made
    it for me.

    Thanks Greg. Glad you enjoyed it.

    My son does!

    We won't sharpen it but I'm sure it will hold a great edge. The steel in these files is nice.


    Hmmmm...wonder why...maybe he really doesn't like you LoL

    That is a nice one. I do like that stag!!!

    Your son can carry it and say meet My Pal Sal!!!!!

    Files are one of the best metals to make knives out of. Easy,available and a good steel. I've done several myself when I was into making knives. I liked to use a Bastard file. That way I had a pair of Bastard Blades. They have their own box for display.
    I just liked the way that sounded when I presented them to folks I was showing!!!
