Sam Stoner Amish Handmade Forged Finished EDC Skinner w/Mesquite

Sam Stoner (Outback Forge) Scottsville, KY "Forged Finished" EDC (Everyday Carry) Skinner with Texas Mesquite Burl Wood Handles & Forged 1080 Carbon Steel

 A rarity among custom knifemakers Sam is an Old Order Mennonite, which like the Old Order Amish, do not not use any electricity or motors in the shop. All of his equipment is connected to pulleys and belts on a overhead drive shaft which is powered by two large draft horses walking on a treadmill. Instead of forging his blades in a gas furnace he uses a hand crank coal fired forge. (which provides for a more even and adjustable air flow). Most of us are inconvenienced by a couple of hours of no electricity whereas it is hard to imagine running a complete knife shop without electric!

This " Everyday Carry Skinner" features Full Tang Construction with Stainless Pins. The 3 1/2", (3" cutting edge), "Forged Finished Blade" , features 1080 Carbon Steel with gorgeous Texas Mesquite Burl Wood Handles.  This piece would make for a superb field knife that is shaving sharp.  Overall length is 7 1/4".

The handmade leather sheath (which is also Amish Made), is a deep fitting sheath, designed so you won't lose it in the field. Full tang construction. Blade is marked with the maker's initials SS. The perfect piece for those who want a blade made the traditional true way (coal forged), and are looking for a no nonsense, handmade, razor sharp , skinner. 

This model will appeal to collectors, hunters, rendezvous/ re-enactors /renaissance folks, or the general outdoorsman/lady.  Sam is a member of the ABS; (American Bladesmith Society).
