    Looking for a 5 or 6 in. nessmuck knife blade with scale holes already drilled. I will handle it myself with elk slabs. Good quality steel, would consider Damascus but not really important.

    Not sure if this guy will ship just a blade, but worth a try. Probably one of the most accurate recreations of a Nessmuk that I've seen. The curves are pretty close, thickness (thinness really) is right, grind is correct.

    I found that sight through this one. http://www.oldjimbo.com/survival/racquette/nessmukbydale.html
    Maybe you can generate another lead through it.
    Unfortunately a correct Nessmuk seems to be very hard to come by. Getting the curves correct through both blade and handle, on the top and bottom, as well as the thinness seems too much to ask.

    I found this email address on that 1st website. I haven't tried it as I'm not in a position to buy anything and don't want to mislead anyone. 1961@localnet.com

    Thanks to all for your suggestions. I have bought the nessmuck from Two Feathers after discussing the blade with him and his in put, very fine knife and will suit me well for the intended purpose.

    "Nessmuk’s views towards knives are arch-typical of the classic outdoorsmen; he preferred thin knives, keen edges and a useable length. Nessmuk, like other classic outdoorsmen, recognized that a hatchet or small axe was the tool of choice for chopping, and wrote with disfavor of large, thick “Bowie” knives. Instead, a smaller knife designed for cutting efficiency was highlyfavored."
