Thanks for looking and commenting about the knife. This knife is one of a series of antler handled O-1 knives. It is 8 inches overall, blade length 3.75 inches, handle length 4.25 inches comes with a leather sheath and is $140 US."
Been making knives for 4 years now and they are getting presentable. Steel US O-1, tool steel, scales are Wyoming Wapati antler, whith brass pins and thong hole. Tough blade with excellent endge retention, stays sharp, and easy to sharpen.
Listened to your groups Youtube recordings. The Feddigans have a very nice sound. I was especially impressed with how together your band sounds, you must have been playing together for a long time?
I used to own a nutrition store, and try to pay a lot of attention to what enters my body. I am 65 I still get around in the mountains on horse and foot as much as I ever have just some what slower than 20 years ago. I plan to keep doing what it is I Iike until I keel over. My idol in that regard was a cowboy named Tom Blasingame who at the age of 92 was riding fence, got off to check some downed wire, and keeled over dead. I have only gotten to Ireland once, and toured Megatlithic sites from Clare to Meath. I very much enjoy archeology as a hobby. I have ancestors from Rosscommon, Galway, Kilkenny, Tipperary, and Cork, so I have plans for returning. There is some interesting information about where I live on my website www.naturetourswyoming.com. You might find the native American petroglyphs especially interestintg.
thanks for your comment. I had a bright Holy Night with my family. Good to know that other people take care about what they are eating and respect animals. Although the duck that was cooked by my wife was excellent.
I wish you a good Christmas Time and a good new year. I`m 51 and I got to work as a family doctor for some years. But I like it, I often use biological medicine. If you like visit our webside www.the-feddigans.de. It is the page of our Irish Folk band. I am the guitarist. You can hear some tunes on youtube. Take care! Pitti from Germany
I read your comments on the hunters group. I am from Germany and I am also a hunter. I love and respect nature and the primary cause to go hunting is to get some food. I try to avoid to eat "industrial meat" of animals which had never seen the sun or sky. I also love the Celts. In our region in the south of cologne (60 miles away from Cologne) we have a lot of archaeological refunds of the Celts. Some days ago I passed a grave of an celtic duke in form of a little hill. We can learn a lot from the old folks.
Greetings from old Germany. Pitti
