Out of the Menefee Shop
Comes this "one of" ,"Five Points Coffin" It's a kitchen knife.A Bowie kitchen knife!
5/32" CPM 154 CM ss,hollow ground.
Unbelievable tapered tang
It's 13" OAL,Blade is 8.25" from tip to the gorgeous antique butterscotch paper micarta,7-7/8" of wicked razor edge The blade is 1-1/8" at it's widest point

This knife is beyond my wildest knife fantasies.
My pictures do not do it justice.
I am two knives away from the complete set,this has been being built over a while now.These are my kitchen knives.
Thank You very much Rick,there are probably only a few makers out there,that could come close to this blade.

Sorry about the lousy pics....

Larry Parsons did a magnificent job,as usual,crafting a "scabbard" style sheath for this big knife

Thanks for the clarification Vince by adding the word 'knife' a 2nd time to your sentence. I was thinkin' that we were alike in that both of us like nice steel...but real damn different in other ways! smile

That is a killer blade. He does such impressive work from what I've seen. That's an impressive bunch of knives ya' got there already...show us the other two when ya' get them. Congratulations.

It's cool how they darken over time. I think the dark ones look real good. How dark will they get? Whaddya do with those big ol' blades?

The two being built are smaller knives.Paring knives/kitchen utility.

This is the pattern for one,it's a swayback handle & a unique blade shape,a little recurve action

[Linked Image]

The other,a teardrop handle & a warncliffe with a little recurve
Try not to be too distracted by the other goodies (patterns) in this shot
Its to the left of the hunters skinner axe
[Linked Image]

These two blade styles were inspired by blades on this Tony Bose 5 blade Rogers whittler
Can you see the two ?

I spend FAR too much on hunting knives and not nearly enough on the everyday kitchen blades.

I am so very jealous.

Vince,

I really like the bottom knife in the 4th photo. Does the blade have much flex to it?

RNF I am not sure I know witch one you are referring to

The last pic,the "group shot" bottom knife is a standard fillet/boner 3/32" stock,flexes at the tip a little,but not meant to be a flexible fillet

Vince,

That is the one I was thinking about. I like the design very much and was wondering if it was a fillet or a little stiffer. Thanks

RNF He can make those in a few thicknesses.I like the 3/32"
That butcher knife in the group shot,at the top,that is 3/32" as well.Typically he does those in 1/8" but that one is a thinner stock style. Wicked slicer grinds!

Vince you're going to cut yourself bad one of these days with everything you always have going on. I was kidding Rick about that big one on how long it would take.
