You can edit your posts within the 1st 48 hours. Delete or add pictures, delete or modify text, etc, etc. Use the button with the pencil in it in the upper right corner of your post. You can even delete your post entirely if you get to it before someone posts a reply, again within the first 24 or 48 hours. Sorry I don't remember which. Use the button with the X in it.

You can also click the pencil, then the Attachments option, click Add Files and delete the first attachment without getting rid of the whole post. 😉👍

Looks to be custom made. Maybe a coffin hilt reenactment Bowie type knife based on the both the knife and sheath design.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

Looks to me like a custom made knife that was made to look like a 1800's coffin handled bowie. Also could have been called a boot knife, or gamblers knife. Looks pretty well made but not made by a well known maker. Most makers would have stamped their name on the blade. ::tu:: Terry

Sig! You aroused my curiosity so I did some searching. If you click-on this safe link, www.arizonacustomknives.com and enter 1026365 in the "Search" box, a very similar knife will come up that's built by R.J. Kessnick, and no, I've never heard of him either! 8)

Marco, That was a nice bit of research. I would not have thought checking with ACK since there was no name on the blade.

Thanks Garry, I guess I have my moments! I get daily email notifications from ACK for when knives from builders I've requested to be notified about come in. I made a point of requesting "Strider" knives as one of them because the pages are ALWAYS full of Strider's, so it was a way to pretty much guarantee I'd get daily notifications so I could view everyday without needing to remember to check the site everyday, my memory's not what it use to be. There's usually about 6 pages of "Recently Listed" knives to view, and when doing so I remember quite a few I've seen. The OP knife is one of them I remembered. 8)

I was wondering how you got to that solution. I get notifications on just a couple of makers.

It's a good way to have new knives to view each day. I look forward to the email arriving, usually around 3:30 P.M. Central Time Monday-Friday, nothing on weekends. I don't follow Strider knives AT ALL, but it was a good one to choose since there are always so many coming in, and then I get to see all kinds of great knives all the while ignoring the Strider's. 8)
