    It's not been a great week or so for me what with a sinus infection and migraines but I came home to a small package. When I opened it up this was inside.

    I will have to ask Tye who made it...but he sure does know my taste in knives. Do I know why he sent it...no. But it helps cheer one up when they are really down.

    I received a bit more info on this knife...definitely interesting person who made it.

    "I forgot to tell you the history of the neck knife, it was a blade that Frank Sams ground out back in the seventys, he gave it to me and said for me to design a handle for it. I layed it aside and forgot up until a few years back....I gave it back to Frank and told him to stick a handle on it from a piece of antler I gave him.....you have the results, he made the sheath and dyed it green, the silver inlay in the pommel was a dime, Frank is a retired Secret Service agent, his work made the magazines a few times, but he never sought fame.....just did it because he could."

    Never realized it was a neck knife - hmmm, interesting! :D
