    For whatever reason your image is not showing up , might try again .

    I just have a cheap Kershaw. I tend to lose knives so I don't buy expensive ones.

    I understand completely. I used to carry a Case knife, but saw how much wear and tear there was on a every day carry knife, and relagated my case knives to display cases. My carry knives are all Rough Rider brand made in China, which I think hold an edge every bit as good as the American Brands, and usually about 1/2 to 1/3 rd the price.

    Railroad spike knives are very popular as first projects for beginning forgers, and a lot of longtime forge folks who can get very intricate. What's not to like about a rail road spike. Just the right amount of material and initial length to forge it into a medium sized hunting knife. You can buy barrel fulls of spikes at a Cost of $0.25 each and if I were forging them, I would just walk down any railroad track and you will see all you need just laying around.

    Back to my original reason to come here. As many know, I collect knives, and I have had a recent fascination with knives commemorating past war campaigns. The scales on this Vietnam War commemorative are the colors of the Vietnam service ribbon, so I am informed. I have a knife with Operation Desert Storm ribbon scales and Lazer Etched blades as well as this Vietnam knife.
    I was going to place it and several other commemoratives in a display box, but I know a Vietnam Veteran who was a Huey Gunner in the 7th Calvary in the "Aw, Sh-- Valley" of "We Were Soldiers" fame. He and I are both 71. I met him in this little neighborhood bar I stop off at from time to time a couple of years ago. He is a pretty good sized guy, and trim, and I suspect a good person to still have your back. He can get loud, and probably talks more about his combat tour than most combat vets do, but at least his spirit is more upbeat than most friends I had come back from Nam, who were in Combat. At least, being a gunner in a Huey was why he didn't have agent Orange dumped on him. None of my friends who were exposed to Agent Orange are alive today.
    Anyhow, the more I thought about his experiences, I decided to give him the knife and thank him for his service.

    Like I said I will lose a knife before it gets to the point of uselessness. I think most people are like me. I carry a pistol to defend my family. I carry a knife to open toys. If everything else has gone horribly wrong, if my pistol and my OC are empty and I am counting on my knife, I am in pretty dire straights.

He found it hilarious, that I randomly ended up with his piece of junk, gift wrapped and all.

    So last week I ordered a Morakniv Classic No. 2 carbon steel knife blade blank from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1



    Yesterday I cut the antler to length, touched it up with a file, drilled a hole and filled it with 2-part epoxy, inserted the knife tab, and came up with this.

    I'm going to take it with me when I meet him for breakfast tomorrow morning and ask if he has any more junk deer antlers I can have.

    PS: I have ordered a slender fillet knife blank to insert into the remaining portion of the antler.
    UPDATE

    The fillet knife is finished.

    I modified the camp knife handle to make it more ergonomic.
