I just got out this Tribute knife I made about 20 years ago or so . This was my 1st edition for my immediate family . I had made [ 2 ] additional for family members . Ok some info' on the make up of it :

The blade is a razor sharp Buck about 6+ inches in length with a gold filled in blood groove . The handle came from an Elk that was harvested by another Nam Vet I met in the War Trauma Project , Augusta Ga ['92 ] .

The attached metals on the sheath front were bought from a Vet's website . The Sheath itself is like a natural rough buck suede , hand stitched with artificial sinew . The back of the sheath I stamped in the letters shown .

On the handle front is a metal replica of my M60 M.G. I opted to coat everything on the handle with epoxy and the very top [ not shown ] is a Red POW metal I recessed in as a pommel . That picture came out too blurry to make it out .

I can say with certainty these do not exist anywhere , except for mine & the other [ 2 ] I made . They are fully functional and have been stored with K Bars and assorted other personal hunting , fishing and self defense tactical knives and bayonets (y)馃嚭馃嚥

Very nice. (y)
Thank You also Sir ! When I attempt to do speciality items , it is Not me guiding my thoughts and outcomes . I truly believe that I have been given certain abilities to convey and express my thoughts in this way .

I'm not a religious person per se , but I do know I had No prior training & some Entity has been influencing my work . I do believe we All have a Special gift my friend .

Thank You Sir ! I know that I can be a bit complex at times , but every once in a while I am reminded that I should share some of my heartfelt work that I have been blessed with .

Now some may think this is Talent and something that I was taught . In the past I have received a power to create & Not by My Hand at all .

Many may think that I'm really 'Off the Rails' , I have no other explanation to convey how I even go about starting to create things out of nowhere it seems :unsure:

Beautiful work Charlie with a beautiful message.
Thank You Roger for your kind words ! At times I feel that I have this ability to get my thoughts across , through a weird sort of a guidance and not of my own . As you had written the word "Message" , that lit me up Immediately .

You actually showed me the Clarity of exactly what i was trying to accomplish . I guess this Commemorative knife was just a symbol to convey exactly that .

I'm not that smart to just grab parts and pieces , not even knowing how I'm able to get to an end product , Especially with the Aforementioned "Message " .

That was My Latent thought I Guess , but I didn't recognize that some [ 20 ] years ago . Now I see that it was Always about Unity , Compassion , Brother & Sister hood , Patriotism , Pride , Intestinal Fortitude , Pain and Suffering 馃嚭馃嚫馃嚭馃嚫馃嚭馃嚫

Thank You Rick ! That is a very nice reply and what my original intent was for . You used the word * 'Custodian' , which is the exact way that I believe .

Do we really Own , or Rather your *chosen word . Yes as we do not live forever , things of this nature should be passed down in perpetuity , no matter who (y)馃嚭馃嚫馃嚭馃嚫

Mr. Caleb - As with all others I wanted to Thank You for your gracious input ! I will readily admit that this much response was not expected at all .

I posted this only to 'Share' with the members , as i thought it would be nice that someone did a Tribute of their own . You members on here are 'Quite Something Special' (y)馃嚭馃嚫
