I am ready to see it! Feel free to post a picture of it here if you wish to let the others see it, Tim.

I will be up sometime this next Summer to help my brother out for a while. I will be running one of his BBQ trailers at various festivals and such, July through September 10. When I get up that way, we'll have lunch one day at the restaurant!

Frog---OUT!

Well I got to field test one of my Bobs in S35VN on a deer yesterday. Damned that thing
performed excellent. I think it was the quickest field dress job I have ever done. Split the rib
cage really well. But no pics so it did not happen?

Tim, so glad you had a chance to get out a do some hunting this year! I was going to try and come up for the opener myself, but things just didn't work out. I'd say next year, but it depends on how things go in Wyoming on our Elk hunt.

This year there were almost no shooting within hearing range for the opener and
usually it sounds like a war zone. ???????

The original pattern Michigan Slim is one I should have gotten. I do have a few others from Tim though. This picture shows the long and the short of my Olt knives. lol

Tim called that one the "Snub Nose". I got it back in 2017. It did great skinning Antelope and it worked well the other day on a Florida Whitetail buck. Blade is right at 2 1/2 inches of D2 steel, with butterscotch Micarta.

And I think that was the one and only "Snub Nose" ever. Might have been one more???

Thar Snub nose is a great pattern Tim, and would be great in that S35N. I did not realize it was a limited addition.

Looks like it would work well as a small skinner.


I used a dropped Slim on a lot of deer last year and used it Saturday on the first one this year. I have to cross a state line so I can only bring meat and horns back. I do a gutless method, skinning and taking all the meat, so it's not just field dressing. The little knife hasn't been sharpened yet and it's still walking through them. Seems to be holding the edge very, very well.

I do not think I have a copy of the original pattern, but I may consider doing a couple
whenever I do another batch.
Sounds like 3 are spoken for so...????

There are several patterns I do/have done that began as customer inspired knives or
just were inspired by the band saw and grinder and where they took me.

Anyhow, thanks guys and for those still waiting, I am on the down hill side of finishing up
this last set of orders.
Thanks
Tim

I'm waiting eagerly to see the finished product! Just closed on my new house in Wyoming so the new knife will be riding in style in the Mountains!

Sounds like I will need to do a batch in 2023 and incorporate the Snub Nose into the line up
with 5 spoken for already.

PS: the handle material like on the Mannlicher knife is all gone.

Thanks
Tim

Sam----What is the oal of that knife???
