ALAN WOOD. "ELLISON HUNTER".

A new(ish) design from Alan. With a subtle semi-skinner blade shape and relatively compact handle, this could be all the knife that some need. This is only the second knife of this model I have received from Alan and it's quite a 'looker', with a black micarta handle and Tan Tufnol spacer, offset with bronze pins and a brass loveless bolt. 12c27 stainless steel blade. Complete with a black leather sheath. Blade: 3-1/4". Oal: 7".

SOLD PUMA. GERMANY. "Model 956 - 1991 vintage.

Deatails aded asap.  £345 inc. UK p&p

MAUSER. GERMANY. "INTEGRAL HUNTER Limited Ed.".

This model has now been discontinued by Mauser and was made for them by Boker. It must have been a limited edition as it has the number 593 on the bolster. I have also seen this same integral (no joins - one piece of steel) with a Amboya Wood handle but this one has very nice Sambar stag.The knife has been used and sharpened (and shows a few scratches as a result) but has years of life left in it. Blade: 3-1/2 inches. Oal: 7-1/2 inches. Complete with original sheath. 

Very Good condition. £145 inc. UK p&p. NOW £120 inc. UK p&p

Complete guide to HUNTING KNIVES. by Durwood Hollis. Details in BOOKS. Excellent cond. £10 inc. UK p&p

HOCHSTEIN. HUNGARY. "ENGRAVED HUNTER".

As a knife that was part of a collection I recently bought, I have to confess that I know very little about this maker - other than he certainly knows how to craft a knife ! Hafted in Wild Boar tusk and with stunning scroll work on both sides of the blade, this knife is very European in flavour but epitomizes 'Pride of Ownership'. The s/steel guard is very well fitted and if this knife does not sell, I could well be tempted to keep it for my own use. Complete with original 'deep seated' brown leather pouch sheath. Blade:85mm Oal:185mm. 

Excellent, unused condition.  £395 inc. UK p&p

SOLD PUMA KNIVES. GERMANY. " Deluxe Model 21 0563".

Details added asap

HARTKOPF & CO. GERMANY. "Hunting Knife Series #641Hh".

A vintage knife from this well establised and respected German company. Although this company still produces a similar model, I would hazard a guess and say this knife was made around the 1960's. The quality is very good and of a similar standard to those made by Puma.

Hafted in some very nice quality Sambar Stag and complete with a gralloching blade, saw and locking main blade plus the obligatory corkscrew to celebrate a succesful hunt. Although there are some signs of tarnish ( as you would expect for the age ) the knife appears to have seen very little use. Closed length: 4 inches.

Excellent condition. £185 inc. UK p&p SALE: £160 inc. UK p&p

BARK RIVER. USA. "DROP POINT -CPM3v steel".

A classic Bob Loveless design, executed very well indeed by Bark River, with a particularly nice piece of Desert Ironwood for the handle. A great working knife in a steel that Bob would have loved ! Blade: 3-5/8". Oal: 8-1/4". Complete with original box and sheath. 

Mint & unused. £325 inc. UK p&p SALE: £295 inc. UK p&p

Further reduction - Now £265 inc. UK p&p

SOLD BOKER. GERMANY. "BOB DOZIER Drop Point".

This is a wonderful rendition by Boker of Bob's handmade version of the classic Loveless Dropped Hunter. At a price that's much more affordable but still with top quality materials - including a blade made from CPM-D2 ( the same steel that Bob uses ) this is a lot of knife for the money !

I believe that this knife may now have been discontinued by Boker ( it is numbered 0257, which may suggest it was a Ltd.Ed. ? ) Blade: 90mm. Oal: 207mm. Complete with brown leather sheath but no box.

Mint, unused condition. 

AS Custom Knives. POLAND. "SEMI-SKINNER".

A great choice as a working knife for the larger species by Andrezj, a knifemaker with a great future ahead of him. This is a no frills "does what it says on the tin" type of knife with a 'high viz' red micarta handle and excellent blade shape in premium Elmax stainless steel. This knife comes with a well made leather sheath plus a kydex. Blade:4-1/2inches. Oal: 9-3/8 inches.

BRAND NEW FROM ALAN.

J.C. VISSER. South Africa. "Stretched SKINNER".

Near flawless quaility !! This knife really does have to be seen to appreciate the fit & finish. For those who need a knife with a longer blade, then you really could not buy better. Made from one of today's 'super steels (N690) with a hollow ground, mirror polished blade and a perfectly fitted handle of Maroon micarta with decorative liners and stainless bolsters makes for a knife that anyone would be proud to own.

Blade: 150mm. Oal:270mm. Complete with a sheath made from Black wildebeest hide.

GENE INGRAM. USA. "DOUBLE SETS - G10 & STAG".

Two wonderful pairs of knives from the USA maker known for his sharp knives in D2 Tool Steel. Gene's work is not often seen on this 'side of the pond' which is a shame as he makes a great 'no-frills' working knife, with lovely grinds and perfect fit & finish. The Orange G10 set is probably more pure hunting but the Sambar Stag set would work just as well in capable hands.

SOLD Orange G10 - Blades: 3-1/4". Oal: 7-1/2" Brown leather double sheath.  Mint condition. £350 inc. UK p&p

SOLD Sambar Stag.

ALAN WOOD. "CANADIAN".

please email for details. £320 inc. UK p&p

SOLD ALAN WOOD. "LONG SAFARI" -A2 steel (rare).

A model not often seen from Alan, this being a longer bladed version of his Safari model. The real 'rarity' though, is this particular version is in A2 Tool Steel. Being made in 2011, I suspect this steel is from the same batch that Alan used on his 25yr. Anniversary knives.

Alan was impressed with the performance on the test knife for those knives and whoever buys this will no doubt be just as impressed if used in the field. Even as a collector piece, this is a unique offering from Alan. (this knife has come out of a Collection ). A black Micarta handle with 'brick red' liners and s/steel fitting compliment the 'Buckskin dyed' leather sheath. Blade: 4-1/4". Oal: 8-1/2". 

Mint, unused cond. £375 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD DAN CROTTS. USA. "DROP POINT". Himalayan Sheephorn

Collectors and users of Bob Dozier knives will be well aware of Dan as he works for Bob, making Dozier knives. Occassionally, Dan will spend time in his own workshop and make his own range of knives, which, not surprisingly, are heavily influenced by Bob knives. This particular knife is very comfortable in the hand and is made from D2 tool steel, with Bob's superb heat treatment. The handle is stunning Premium Himalayan Sheephorn, with red liners and the package is completed with a very secure kydex sheath. Blade: 3-1/2". Oal: 7-3/4". 

Mint, unused condition. 

SEKI CUT. JAPAN. "BOB LUM Design - ENCOUNTER".

A classic design by the late, great Bob Lum. Now discontinued, this is how it was described when offered for sale : 4-1/8"ATS34 Drop point Utility blade with thumb notches on the back. 4-1/8" black anodized aluminum handle with lanyard hole on the end. Comes with a double stitched brown leather sheath. This knife is unused and complete with original box.   Mint condition.  SALE price: £110 inc. UK p&p

SOLD PUMA. GERMANY. "3591 - WAIDMESSER". A superb example of this now discontinued knife. Possibly the complete "one Knife does all" for the Stalker ? Main fixed blade, with a bone saw and gralloching blade folded inside the handle ( and a corkscrew to celebrate a good day in the field ! ). Complete with original leather sheath but missing the 'frog' for belt carry (simply carry it in a pocket or backpack instead ).Made in 1971. Mint, unused condition. 

SOLD ALAN WOOD. "TROPHY".

A rare model from Alan and only the second example I've had for sale. I can't imagine any knife to be more stunning than this, with the Damasteel blade, stainless steel bolsters and gorgeous Mammoth ivory handle. Complete with brown leather sheath and guarantee.

Blade: 2-3/4". Oal: 6-1/2". Mint, as new condition.

RANDALL MADE KNIVES. USA

SOLD RANDALL MADE KNIVES  "Model #4-6". Many would say that Randall Made are the "most famous knives in the world" ( and I would be one of them!). No other knives have the pedigree and heritage that Randalls possess and there was a time when a Randall Made was the best knife money could buy - and the fact there is a current 4 1/2 YEAR waiting list suggests that a lot of people still feel that way !

This is the Model 4 "Big Game & Skinner", in 01 carbon steel, and handled in gorgeous 'finger grooved' stag, which is an extra cost option from Randall. Brass guard and butt cap. This knife feels very comfortable in the hand.

A really spectacular Randall and if I was tempted to start collecting Randalls again, this would be a great place to start !

Mint, unused condition. 

ALAN WOOD UK

SOLD ALAN WOOD "STALKER".  Everything once in a while, Alan will upgrade a standard "working" model with gorgeous stainless Damascus and this Stalker is such an example. The Hakkapella pattern particularly suits the long blade and coupled to a black micarta handle (with blue liners) really makes for a classy knife! A very well made black leather swivel sheath completes a package that would please the most fastideous owner. Blade: 4 3/4"  Oal : 9 1/2"

Pristine mint cond. 

H. HITCHMOUGH UK

SOLD  HOWARD HITCHMOUGH "SEMI-SKINNER". As I have mentioned before, Howard was the premier UK maker before emigrating to the US of A, a good few years ago. Even now, there are only a very few UK makers capable of matching his high standard of workmanship. This knife is one of his earlier knives, as denoted by the logo, but the fit & finish is superb. The 4" blade is in a semi-skinner style, made of D2 tool steel (I have customers who use Howard's D2 knives and they say the edgeholding is amazing!).  The handle looks to be Bocote(?) wood, with black liners and fastened by stainless Corby bolts with a wonderful tapered tang. Nickel silver guard. Oal is 8 1/2". Howards knives are getting harder to find and this one will make either a great user or an addition to a collection of UK makers. 

Mint condition. 

L. PENDLETON USA

SOLD LLOYD PENDLETON. California.  Lloyd is a Knifemaking Legend over on the other side of the pond, having made his first knife in 1973 and becoming a Full Time maker in 1978 - and is still active today !  This is his Classic Semi-Skinner which is probably recognisable to those familiar with Cold Steel knives, as they do several copies of this model. This is a wonderful knife, the genuine article - comfortable in the hand and amazing fit and finish. 3 1/2" blade of mirror finished stainless steel ( possibly ATS34 ?), s/s guard and green micarta handle, with red liners giving an oal of 8 1/2". Priced at just a little over what you would pay for a Cold Steel copy ! 

P. WILSON USA

SOLD  Phil Wilson - Seamount Knife Works. MEADOWS Semi-skinner. A chance to buy a knife that is rarely seen on this "side of the pond" by Phil Wilson, whose work is very highly regarded in America - so much so that he has recently worked with the World Famous knife brand, Spyderco who are selling a version of Phil's work. Phil himself is no longer accepting orders due to being backlogged by over a year ! This very practical Hunter has a 4 1/2" blade of premium CPMS30V with a green canvas micarta handle, for a oal of 9". Brand new, mint condition. 

ALAN WOOD UK

SOLD   Alan Wood. MINI HUNTER model. One of Alan best selling models that has been a main stay of his catalog since the beginning. I doubt if many have been as nice as this version. Lovely Odin's Eye damascus blade and Sambar stag handle with s/s fittings. Dark brown pouch sheath with Alan's logo stamped onto it. Just waiting for someone to take this beauty out into the field ! 2 3/4" blade. oal 6 3/4". Brand new, a CLA knife. 

BOB DOZIER USA

SOLD  Bob DOZIER.  ARKANSAS TRAVELLER.  Living Legend Bob Dozier has built his reputation on making "no nonsense, no frills" hard working knives for people who actually use them. His favourite steel is D2 tool steel in which he has perfected the art of heat-treating, to obtain the maximum performance ( this stuff justs keeps on cutting !! ). Every once in a while, Bob will upgrade a model with a premium handle material and this is such an example. The extremely rare, genuine AMBER stag ( not the dyed version that is more commonly seen ) makes this knife a thing of beauty to treasure or to use. Aol 6 7/8" and a blade of 2 7/8". D2 steel at 60-61rc. Complete with a kydex sheath.  This is out of my own collection. Mint.

So sad to hear that Knifemaking Legend TONY BOSE passed away yesterday.

The word legend is often used but in Tony's case it was entirely justified. More than anyone, he rekindled interest in the 'slipjoint' genre and was generous with his time and knowledge to other makers of this type of folder, including his work with W.R. Case.

I am proud to say I knew him and met him and the Knifemaking World will be a lesser place without him.

RIP
