    Just had my 60th on the weekend & was gifted these custom F1, S1 and A1 Fallknivens by the crew ,back when we were traveling around Oz in our Mitzi 4x4 Canter Camper ,we would drop the camper off in remote mountain spots & go Sambar hunting for a couple of weeks at a time ,we got to know & become good friends with a few of the keen Hound teams as they would hunt during the week & it ended up they would share our camp & leave gear with us rather than carting it back & forth .

    One of the blokes was a very talented Knife maker & he custom made these to my specs ,unbeknown to me, mates had been cunningly squizzing me on what l thought was a perfect hunting knife set up around the camp fires while we were away hunting .

    I have always liked the larger Fallknivens for field dressing/butchering but have big hands so found the handles on the small side & we do a lot of Jet Boat hunting & a couple of Stewart Island boat, Fiordland expeditions each year,so wanted a Kydex sheath & a large camp/boat knife . He custom made the larger handles & Kydex Sheaths for me & reground them ,they have already done a couple Deer,Pigs & Goats each .

    Not really hunting related, or maybe it is from the food prep hunting side.
    Venom K tip kitchen knife. 14c28n, stabilized Pohutakawa, curly maple and purple juma composite handles. This one is for a Kiwi based in Colorado over the ski season. Might be carving Turkeys with this one ��

    Louie, that repurposed sheep shear knife is awesome - I've never seen anything like it. Clever idea. I love this thread for all the professional knives being shown, but also for all those hobbyists "having a go" making their own. I might track down some shears myself...

    Cheers mate, I saw some other guys have a crack at it on here and I figured I'd have a go too. I'll use the other blade with the makers stamp to make a nicer one when I've got the right antler.

    The old shears tend be decent German steel and anywhere from $15-50 on trade me.

    This is my first hunting knife..... it started life as a standard Green River Skinner style that all shepherds used to use.
    I replaced the wooden handle with a piece of Antler and used it like that for years before it got deemed not fit for purpose and left in the hunting cupboard for about 30 years.
    Then one long wet day, I dug it out and took a sanding block to the Antler which improved it immensely.
    But the big swept skinning shaped blade still grated with me, so on another long wet day, I shortened the blade and reshaped it to a clip point....... far more user friendly.
    I managed to bludge a bit of leather and made it a new sheath on another slow wet week
