"Folding Hunter"

   The Folding Hunter was the standard American folding hunting knife in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Because of its shape this knife has picked up the nicknames "Coke Bottle" and "Swell Center Hunter." This knife is made by Jeff in both a locking and non-locking version.

   Jeff's Folding Hunter pattern has a flat ground blade with a variety of blade steels and finishes to choose from. The blade has a half stop and is available with either a long pull or nail nick and also an optional swedge. The length of this knife is 5-1/8 inches closed with a 3-1/2 inch blade and can be handled in any material you wish. Bolsters, pins and liners are available in stainless steel, nickel-silver or brass. Decorative filework and bar shield are also available. Here are a few examples of knives Jeff has made in this pattern:
