    Re: Another Knife

    It looks well made, probably a bone handle and I can see the tip is broken. It's not quite big enough to be a Bowie knife but it is of that style. If you decide to dress down the point remember to heat quench the tip if you use a high speed grinding wheel otherwise it won't hold an edge. KS aka JIM Excellent!

    Re: Another Knife

    I also have one.  It isn't that Skinner.... at least it isn't like my skinner.  Definantly a Puma.  Good knife, made with good steel. They aren't a cheap knife either. Mine was about 80 or 90 bucks if I remember right.

    Re: Another Knife

    I would not put it on a grinder, use a stone and take it down that way. It will take some time but worth not messing with the temper. The point will come out fine with a little effort. Ive done all my point breaks that way.

    Re: Another Knife

    My dad was a knife maker.  I have seen him repair MANY broken points.  He would use a gear reduced grinder with a stone water wheel.  Turning about 90 RPM.  He would also do this BARE HANDED holding close to the grind area.  He said that when it got to hot to hold, he let it cool.  It kept him from ruining the temper of the steel.  Once roughed back in to the correct shape, he would then oil-stone finish it by hand.  He also would have SCREAMED at anyone who took a file to a fine knife.  LOL  I can hear him now... "A file is for a lawnmower blade not a knife blade!"

    Jake, if you decide to repair this knife, use a drill press on the lowest speed possible (300 RPM?)with a STONE grinder wheel. (since I doubt you have access to a knife makers water wheel grinder)  Keep a bucket of water beside you.  Grind for about ONE second and dip it until cold.  Repeat as necessary.  Once roughed into shape and finish it out on an oil stone. 

    That knife is a higher quality blade made in Solingen, Germany. 
    (A town FAMOUS for high quality swords and knives.)
    Just ask ANY knife enthusiast or aficionado!


    A VERY NICE FIND INDEED!

    Not just "Another Knife"
