Sam Stoner / Scottsville, KY Handmade Double Rasp Forge Finished Survival/Bowie Knife with English Walnut Handles and American Bison Belt Sheath

Sam Stoner (Outback Forge) Scottsville, KY is a rarity among custom knifemakers in that he is "Old Order Mennonite" (those groups of 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 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 electricity.

 This "Bowie Knife" shows the traditional and personal side of Sam, a Forge Finished Blade, a super heavy duty 10", (8 3/4" cutting edge), Blade made of Dual Rasp Files, (which is made from 1080 Carbon Tool Steel that takes and holds an excellent edge), with English Walnut Handles and a Lanyard Hole at the base. Heavy Duty Full Tang Construction. Blade is ultra thick measuring 5/16" thick! THIS IS A KNIFE!

The Blade retains that "unfinished" "Forged" finish and Rasp File detail in the blade and a built in finger guard like traditional pieces made from a Blacksmith's forge from 19th century, and marked with Sam's initials "SS". Weighs 2 lbs with the sheath and 1lb 11oz without. Overall length is 15 3/8". One of the largest and most heavy duty bowies Sam has ever offered! It is one of the sharpest we have ever seen, and we would compare it to Al Mar's Alaskan Bowie, Blackjack's Shining Mountain Bowie, and Cold Steel's Trailmaster Bowie w/ Carbon V.

Features a handmade leather American Bison sheath. The perfect piece for purists who want a blade and sheath made the early traditional way. Sam is a member of the ABS; (American Bladesmith Society). Highly Recommended!
