Scagel type knife, hand forged from 52100 steel by my good friend Rodrigo Mulero of 2G Knives, in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

15cm/6in blade, Ironwood handle, Sheridan style sheath.

Sorry, convex grind makes it impossible to photograph without all kinds of reflections.

My son mentioned your unique way of displaying a knife collection. How about posting a picture of it here?

My best knives are displayed in a coffee table/display case, in my office at home.

The five knives on the right are hand forged by three friends of mine, the five on the left are production knives which have been customised at the factory, by having different handle materials, laser etched African motifs, and my name somewhere.

In the center is a Scagel type hand forged folder with elephant ivory scales, and my initials.

Is that an analog only stereo in the background? No digital doohickeys?

Thank you Von Gruff, I knew you would be interested ;)

Here is a closer look of the knife

It is basically a Muela Kodiak, 8 units were made for hunters and PH´s on my second Safari. The material used is ram horn filed and polished.

The manufacturer liked the result so much, it´s now on their catalogue.

Thank you for the close up. There are some very nice details seen with the closer look. I do like what has been done with the guard.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
