    Custom knife with an Ironwood handle

    Several years ago I worked for a company that had a nice hunting lease in South TX on the King Ranch. Our company gave these to the customers we brought down, and I had a great customer that gave his to me....actually made me take it...im happy. The maker, im told but dont know for sure, lives on the King Ranch, and the blade, handle, and scabbord are all hand made.

    (the blade is chrome in color...stupid camera makes it look like gunmetal. Enjoy.

    Nice knife. Guess I'll hold on to this on, famous maker. I guessed the King Ranch story was made up.
