Pocket knives are more than practical stainless steelscrimshaw tools. Examine the hand-carved handles on the pocket knives and tools from Sam McDowell, if you will, such as his Seacloud Pocket Knife or the McDowell Chesapeake. Works of true art, you can also cut anything in style with those knives--really! The artist obtains the stainless steel blades for all his pocketknives from the Kai Cutlery of Seki City, Japan, a company with a legendary history as makers of samurai swords.
We also have pocket knives from Col. Littleton, like the stainless steel blade with bone handle, called The Yukon. The handle on this pocketknife is engraveable, so you can personalize your knife. The Colonel's stag bone handle pocketknife (its name of Foxfire reflecting the unique color of the bone) is one sweet looking pocket knife that's wicked sharp. The symmetrical balance and smooth lines of each of these knives make them as good to hold as they are to behold.
