Very cool, excellent workmanship there. I'm going to give that a go myself.

I have a few golden-oldies like that too which I inherited from my grandfather who was a prolific pig-hunter. I used a couple of his old knives for years without too much regard for loosing them... luckily I never did and I've oiled and stored them safely away as I'd hate to loose one now.

I just use a dirty yellow handled Victorynox boning knife these days Grin But its a shame as these older knives do have a certain something about them.
