    Nice! Who made it?

    I found a good Wilkinson one that I wore for years, then a couple years back I decided to splurge and had Jim Behring make me one. Well, really it was just one of his drop-point pocket models with a nice stag handle. But that's what I'm into now.

    Made by Sheffield cutlery in UK, no proof marks on blade tho, seller is on Amazon. I think it's a one man shop. He makes 'em by hand. He's got a Damascus version there as well that's really sweet. There's a few fine scratch marks I need to buff out 'cause I had to go and put a better edge on it. It's supposed to be more of a decorative item but I like useful knives.

    Yeah, I don’t believe in knives that aren’t functional. It’s a looker.

    I’ll check out Sheffield.

    It's a survivor. Bought at the PX in Port Hueneme about 1975. I was TAD to 31stNCR While waiting for NMCB40 to rotate back from Diego Garcia. I carried it dang near every day since.
