Sam Stoner Amish Handmade Full Tang Skinner w/Desert Ironwood

Sam Stoner (Outback Forge) Scottsville, KY (Everyday Carry Piece) EDC with Desert Ironwood and 1080 Carbon Steel

 A rarity among custom knifemakers in that he is "Old Order Mennonite" (Swiss German and south German heritage who practice a lifestyle without some elements of modern technology, who dress plain and who have retained the old forms of worship, baptism and communion).

Sam does not use any electricity or motors in his 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 just a couple of hours without electricity so it is hard to imagine running a complete knife shop without electric!

This " Everyday Carry Knife" features Full tang Construction with Brass Pins and a lanyard hole.  3 3/8" Blade (3 1/8" cutting edge), is forged from 1080 Carbon  Steel with beautifully grained Desert Ironwood  HandlesThis is a great utility/hunter/skinner that is shaving sharp.  Overall length is 7 3/8".

The handmade leather sheath is hand tooled for good looks with a deep fitting design so you won't lose it in the field. 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 simple, no nonsense, handmade, razor sharp knife at a most affordable price. 

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). Look for more of Sam's exclusive pieces found only at AIK..
