Anyone on this site an admirer of Kit Carson's knives? I would like to see some pics of what you have had made or bought. yf

I bought my first handmade from Kit about 13 years ago. He had a table full, and I think that I handled each one of them. He walked me through each one, and acted like he came down from Kentucky just to see me. I bought a large Model 4. He is an outstanding knife maker and a sterling gentleman to boot. He made a knife for my son from a drawing that my son did when he was 8 years old (he's 13 now). Steven gave it to him at the Blade Show and Kit built it. If I can figure out how to do it, I will post the link to his knife album (Steven's knife is shown there, along with lots of other cool pics). I can't say enough about him. I have 6 of his knives, and wouldn't take anything for them. They are impeccable.

go to http://www.kitcarsonknives.com/album/Mi ... index.html

I think this should be the link. Click on "Steven's knife"

Drop the "." after "html" as the link as is does not work, but did after removing the last period

Thanks much, Mr. Administrator-Guy!!! I am a pretty good shot, but find my computer skills sorely lacking. Besides, my 13-yr-old son wasn't readily available to type the technical stuff for me. He is my resident computer genius, not to mention knife designer and all-around good kid.

Kit Carson is a terrific man-a really exceptional human being with awesome knifemaking skills. I am proud to know him and call him a friend.

His new flippers are awesome!

I've had one of his m16 models for a couple of years. It's been a great little pocket knife and the flipper system is as ingenious as it is simple.
