My first attempt at a more period correct knife than what I have normally done in the past. I did it from one of the Dexter Russell high carbon knife kits. It was the Green River Butcher blade blank that I reground to a different shape. The curly Maple handle scales came with it. I also replaced the two-part rivets with brass pins. I felt the brass pins do a better job holding the scales in place. I cold blued the blade to give it an older antique finish. The only thing I don’t particularly like is I wish the blade was thicker so it would balance blade down. It is pretty good quality high carbon steel, just wish it was twice as thick.
