I have German in me and I think this would be a good tradition to pass on to my children.
first I need to make one for my self and I have no nobility to gift me with one. for that matter I am running out of male relatives on my fathers side in a fast hurry. any way....
I will need to make 4. The hides for the sheath and antlers for the handle will not be a problem but finding a supplier for the blade with out handle and any thing else I need is where I am at a loss.
any help with suppliers guy or any one want to help me out by making some blades for me.
ALSO any links with history of the tradition and pictures of these knives would be greatly appreciated!!
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams
