I am planning to modify by adding the Damascus blade and some fancy handles. I haven't figured what would look best yet. Add a cross draw sheath and edc this one. Anyone have any ideas on what handle material would look good with the Damascus blade? 20170421_174023.jpg
Can't wait to see that #112 when you are done with it. I have a couple of knives I would like to re-handle but just haven't found that round tuit yet.
Your Kabar was probably made by Camillus, most marlin spikes made in the US in that era under various brands including my #315 and your Kabar, were clones of the tried & true Camillus #96 Rigging Knife. I have one of those too, and also had a Kabar for a time, but it was a little rough so I later sold it to concentrate on the Bucks.
