    The first knife I want to post are replicas of the first knife Bo Randall made in 1937. This is my most requested knife to build, and also gets the most views and likes on my Facebook page and my Instagram page. IMG_1334.jpeg

    This next knife is probably my favorite knife and my most difficult to make due to the labor intensive sheath. This is my take on the boat scraper knife made by Bill Scagel that got Bo Randall started in making knives. Version 3.jpeg IMG_0385.jpeg

    I think you've got real potential as a knife maker Scott. :D

    Kidding aside - these are stunners - knives & sheaths. Thankfully I don't have to pick a favorite, though the drop point Bird & Trout is especially appealing.

    Congrats on the new sub forum. :thumbsup:

    If you don't own one or more of Scott's knives you are seriously missing out. The pictures almost look as good as the knives. Almost.
