Nine Year Old Chopper

Check this out.

The knife in the video is a collaboration piece recently completed by Conner McGhee and his father E. Scott McGhee (an ABS journeyman smith). This blade, dubbed the Guillotine, will be on display at the 2012 Blade Show in Atlanta along with some of Scott's knives.  It's a brand new camp knife, not a dedicated chopper. Conner is the "chopper," and he's 9 years old.

Steel: 1080
Finish: Belt-finished scandi grind
Overall Length: 15 3/8 inches
Blade Length: 10 inches
Handle: Brown canvas Micarta
This is the first double-signed father-son collaboration knife out of Guinea Hog Forge, but we hope it won't be the last. We'll use this double signature until we can get Conner his own mark.

Conner was planning to sell the Guillotine at Blade, but Grandpa McGhee purchased it before we could get it in the case. He said we could show it off at the show but better bring it back!

Hope to see you there - Table 21R.
