This gentleman was all about performance and it was all he needed to sell his knives.

That is one beautiful knife. It doesn't take long to realize that that is one maker who absolutely knew what he was doing, the geometry is clean and functional, note how the dropped edge is close enough to the handle that the probablity of the blade hanging up in use is extremely remote.

Note the well executed top line and highly functional belly of the blade.

The difference in knives between those that have used knives a lot and those who have not is usually very obvious in the deisgn of their blades.

I sincerely appreciate your posting the photo up for us to enjoy.

Thanks Ed. It just sold for $10,700.00 . I don't think the seller knew what he had or at least didn't have any idea about its value. It was described as "a neat addition to your hunting gear".           To say the least.

The one who purchased that knife got a real bargain, that knife is very special for he did not make many that size and in looking at the pictures of that knife for the last few days I believe he felt it was special also. If I had the money it would be mine today. While I can admire mint condition knives I find I learn much more about the makers abilities when I am able to get to know one that has been well used.

Clay: if you could post up the rest of the photos with the first one I would greatly appreciate it.

My machine says it has them. But, it's giving me dirty looks. They should be posted by the time you're having your tea and crumpets in the morning. First beer for the rest of you guys.             Later,    Clay

This should be a good reference to verify the authenticity of an  M. Scagel stamp.
