Morland Picture Gallery

Lately I have not felt like working on any knives. Today I woke up and had inspiration to finish a few up. It is unusual for me to have multiple knives to take pictures of at the same time.



Love all three of these. I am certainly proud of the "Morland" knife that I own. Wouldn't take anything for it.

Randy - I could of sold your knife at least a dozen times. I still get asked about it. What has it been ... 2 years???

A new blade finished for a law enforcement buddy of mine. A thin blue line was the theme. 1095 carbon steel blade, moose antler scales, brass bolsters, spacer and pins, mosaic front pin, rounded the top of the blade towards the tip, basketweave stamped sheath, stars and blue braiding. It is a surprise birthday gift from his wife/family. Hope he loves it.

I forgot to mention that soundmind sent me the moose antler. First time I have used moose antler scales. I really like using it. Way less pith than deer or elk that I have used on past knives. Thank you, soundmind!!

Another moose knife handled knife. This one was given to me by a buddy of mine that went hunting in Alaska. He drug back a weathered shed and I harvested a tip. It was darkened in black Fiebings leather dye for a few days. Came out a smoky grey color. A fillet knife made from 440c. Moose tip handle with buffalo horn spacers, stainless guard, pin, and spacers. A very nice mosaic pin in the butt cap. A rare unstamped dangler sheath. Braiding on the edging. I cannot remember the last plain sheath that I have made without a single stamp. Weird.

I have been saving some stag scales for the correct knife. How did you get your pins flush with the handle without killing the bark? I thought about using hidden pins but then people assume there are no pins and therefore low quality. Great job De-Mo

Before I ever put on epoxy, I finish one side of the pin. I usually pick the side that would be the most difficult to finish if I used a longer pin. Like in a depression or valley. When I epoxy, I try to get that side of the pin placed exactly where I want it placed or as close as possible. By doing this, I try to eliminate having to sand and shape that pin too much after it is in place. On the opposite side, I use a Dremel with a diamond bit/burr/or two to get the pin as close as possible. Then carefully finish with sand paper. It is not perfect, you will lose some bark. Just try to make it look as neat as possible.

Knife is made from 1075. 5 inch blade and 5 inch handle. Handle is African Blackwood. 416 SS guard, butt cap and 1/16 pin. Rounded spine on the blade. Guard is filed. Butt cap is filed. Mosaic pin in butt cap with brass highlight. Brass highlight inserted into the guard. Tooled black leather sheath with leather lacing. US Marine concho attached. I learned something...the emblem is called a EGA (Eagle, Globe, Anchor). Makes sense to me. Here are the pictures.













Dennis, the sound you just heard is my jaw dropping & hitting the keyboard - all of these knives you just posted are stunning, wow, nice work! I particularly like the USMC model. Where did you get the EGA Concho?

It is a Tandy regular. Also find them at Hobby Lobby. Right at $5.00.
