Swamp Fox Revisited

Another Swamp Fox left the forge this week - a regal, but vicious weapon reminiscent of the gentleman warrior of the Revolutionary War for whom it is named - Francis Marion (aka "The Swamp Fox").

This "Fox" is a little beefier than the original, but no less sleek or functional.

Steel: Hand-forged 5160
Blade: Recurve
Handle: Desert Ironwood with hand-shaped nickel-silver bolsters and 1/16 inch nickel silver pins
Overall Length: 10 1/4 inches
Blade Length: 5 3/8 inches
Sheath: Stamped and dyed custom leather

This Swamp Fox went to a childhood friend of mine who also bought the first knife Guinea Hog Forge ever sold. Thank you much, Mr. Bethune. You helped bring this business to life, and we hope you enjoy your newest blade.

Custom designed leather sheath was also made in-house.
Thanks for looking!

The Native

Scott recently finished the Native - one of our Primitive Series knives. Hand-forged out of Cruforge V, this blade has our hammer-marked Rustic finish and a Desert Ironwood burl handle with 1/16 inch nickle-silver pins.

Steel: CruForgeV
Handle: Desert Ironwood burl
Finish: Rustic
Blade: Recurve
Overall Length: 11 1/4 inches
Blade Length: 6 1/4 inches
Weight: 10.6 ounces
Sheath: Leather

Scott made the sheath as well. We put the knife to the test at our bi-annual hog harvest and it performed splendidly. The following pictures are a bit graphic, so proceed cautiously.

Let us know what you think.
