My latest user, picked up from a fellow collector.
This one sports an 11" blade of L6 steel with a "safari" finish.
Handle is natural canvas micarta finished off with a single guard of stainless steel.

Jason Knight is a Master Smith out of South Carolina.

He makes incredible knives - 'nuff said.

Nice. I have always wondered what the metal piece is that sticks out on certain bowie sheaths. What is it used for?

It's called a "frog"
It's main function is to keep the sheath from slipping past the waistband while carrying.
Some makers will provide a tether strap using it as an anchor vs. a snap.

Michael since you stole that great knife out from under me let me interject :)

Its a "frog stud". A "Frog" is the actual piece of leather that slips over the stud to create a belt loop for belt carry. For IWB carry, just use the stud!
