“How to Collect Custom Hunters”
With the Blade Show cancelled for this year, and hunting season upon us, check out Les’ 3-part article on collecting hunting knives in the current issue (Sept) of Blade Magazine. Les begins discussing collectible users on page 30.
A knife that is a collectible user may sound odd at first. Often, the first custom knife that someone buys is a hunting type knife. This includes a Skinner, semi-Skinner, caper, bird and trout, and even a filet knife.
These knives are primarily bought to be used on the next hunting or fishing trip. While they may end up helping to produce a trophy mount or dinner. This time shared with family and friends creates memories that last a lifetime. The stories are retold repeatedly and passing through generations, connecting people to past and future activities to come.
What memories do your knives hold?
Part two will discuss investment hunting knives considered “users.”
