    My father has slowly been handing things over to me this past year and today he brought over a collection of knives that he had. He had bought them from many many years ago that was needing some money and had made these. I do not know a whole bunch about them but they sure are neat to have at the house now...... thanks dad:claphands::claphands:

    hey cool you said that. They actually have the small initials KR on them. It was many years ago so dad may have got some of his stories mixed up. What can you tell me about Ken and his knives and what about it made you say that?

    I may have to pick your brain a bit later Cherokee on how to sharped these up real good. Especially the one with the gut hook since I plan on carrying it on hunts. I've seen your shaved pictures and know what your doing

    A lot of the bowie knives that I have seen with antler handles and the fancy art work on them like those where made by Ken and if I remember right they are made right here in Southeast Missouri

    Also a lot of the really nice leather work and the some if not most of them came with a littler knife like the one pictured

    They are made right out of Steelville by a town called Davisville.

    makes me wonder if pop's bought them straight from Mr. Richardson? I will have to call him tomorrow and get more info....I'm guessing all three of those antler knives must be his.
