Fightin Bull knives are handmade by a fellow named Wendell Carson. They are very well made knives and Mr. Carson is known for using exotic handle materials. I saw one over on the bay a while back that had swordfish bill scales! If you ckeckout Clays Cutlery AAPK store he has a Couple of fine examples of Wendell's work ::tu:: The crossed tomahawks is his trademark ::nod::

:shock: Sounds like a great deal. I've never seen a Wendell Carson made knife that wasn't well worth that price ::tu:: .

I think he gets most of his steel & metal parts from Queen Cutlery and hand finishes them with a personal touch. He's a very skilled craftsman IMO...

Sounds like an incredible deal. :shock: Wendell started his own brand of "Fightin Bull" knives in 1998. Wendell is an excellent craftsman/knife maker; his "Fightin Bulls" are a step or two above regular production knives; and he makes a full custom from time to time ::tu:: ::tu:: The Fightin Bulls usually go for $100 to a few $100; on his eBay site "Knifeman110". I have owned several of his knives and all were excellent. :D Sam Turner has one of the largest collections; of Wendell's knives that I know of. :mrgreen: ::tu:: ::tu::

Wendell is also a first class individual who has impressed me more than once with his kindness and sincerity...
