Hogan, you got it!

Raymond Richard for yours, correct?  You've got nice taste! I've always admired the talent he has for form, especially in the larger knives.  Thanks for posting your photo.

Yeah, Thats is right.

Raymond Richard at http://www.hawknknives.com/ .

Do we actually have to own the knife/knives that we post in this game?

This one should be extremely easy, as this style as influenced hundreds of knife-makers......

Here's a small one in the Loveless-style from a Canadian maker.   Any ideas?

That's a big 10-roger!

This one will not be easy at all unless you were in chat last eve, so those that were/know get to guess last.

The way it started: pick a knife, post a photo - the person who can name the maker gets to post a photo of a knife for others to identify. Trouble is it does not run smoothly so the object is to have fun with it.
If you can name the maker of the knife it is your turn to pick a knife. If you abdicate by not picking one, anyone can. The rules are no rules, just enjoy the challenge and have fun with it.

I believe Kevin guessed the last maker and posted up a photo of one of a very special knife maker.
Can you identify him?

I agree, this game is more fun with less rules. Post any knives for the good of all. Kevin, that is one primative blade. Interesting, but i have no clue- i would guess civil war era? Am I close?

Kevin posted one, I took a guess, David posted one, Kevin said I was correct and posted another knife. That is where I got lost.... Embarrassed

Looks like a very useful knife that Kevin has posted. The handle looks short and kind of uncomfortable, but I love the blade shape. I don't have a clue who the maker is. What kind of grind does the blade have?

Very good chance that this knife is insured for somewhere between $10 - $15K !

Maker was an extremely avid hunter.

This maker knew what he wanted out of a knife, he used them hard.

More clues?
