I picked this up at a pawn shop,really liked how well it is made, I cannot find out much about it though. It seems the maker only made a few of these and I can't find another one quite like this one.(McBURNETTE 1) Anybody seen one before?
Sorry for crappy pics
Thanks,
Kenny

I believe it is from a maker in eagles nest New Mexico. He passed away sometime back. I can't remember his first name.

I think his first name was Harvey. I have one of his knives here in my shop to make a sheath for that a purveyor left here. Another knife maker came by yesterday and commented on it as he knew him. As for that model knife, who knows maybe google his name and town see where it leads you. Larry.

Pretty cool find. Looks loosely based off the skinner design by Puma (I am sure they weren't the first with it though).

It has the best feel of any of my knives,I think it must be one of a kind, I saw one similar on e-bay,but mine has more detail work. It has never been used or sharpened from the looks of it,the sheath looks brand new also.Guess I may never know the history of it.The sheath has MP stamped in the back,and I guess the owners initials,WK, on the front.

Harvey lived in Eagle Nest, NM about a mile down the road from the ranch I elk hunt on. Specifically up Hwy 38, north of town. He was a highly regarded maker back in the day.

You can correct me but I thought he was the one that developed the mid lock as shown in the picture.

Any ideas on where to send it to have it appraised? Maybe some of the makers here?

Thanks,
Kenny
