For your consideration is this large custom hand made fixed blade bird & trout pattern knife designed and made by Eldon Courtney of Wichita, Kansas. Unused. Original edge. Made in U.S.A August 1984
I did visit Eldon at his home in Wichita< Kansas back in the 1970’s. I remember him as a very nice fellow. His knives at the time were very much desired. He was one of the few knife makers back then.
A mid-size fixed blade knife.
Round antler handle. Brass guard. Hidden tang. Nice grip.
Mirror polished hollow ground thin drop point style blade made from L-6 tool steel. He marked ” Eldon Courtney Wichita Kansas” on one side of blade. He stamped the date on the other tang but hard to read. Ends in 0 so am guessing it’s 1980
8 1/4″ long with a 4″ blade, 1/8″ Thick.
His brown leather sheath is stamped on front 49 and I can’t make out the rest. GENUINE LEATHER is stamped on back side
