Sam Stoner Amish Made Scottsville, KY Custom Made (R.W. Loveless Design) Double Edge "Chute Knife" with Palm Wood & Micarta with Leather Sheath

A rarity among custom knifemakers Sam is  an "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). 

This  "Boot Dagger" or "Chute Knife" shows Sam's personal interpretation of a R.W. Loveless   Design.  Features a 5" Blade made of 5160 Carbon Tool Steel with a sharpened top edge. Features Palm Wood handles with a Micarta Top Spacer and Mosaic Pins. It weighs 4.9 oz. Includes a unique leather "holster style" leather belt sheath which allows you to quickly access your knife. Overall length is 10". Heavy Duty Full Tang Construction.  Tang of the blade is marked with the maker's initials SS.

The perfect piece for most any purpose, from self defense to hunting, perfectly designed to appeal to those who actually use their knives in the field,  or those who want a blade made the traditional true way, (coal forged).
