If you 'really' want an example of what was actually carried and used - get a carbon steel butcher knife.

Those were sold by traders, sutlers, hardware stores, etc - and were carried by everyone who needed a good blade for general use - many were sold without handles, as they were easier to ship - and were handled with antler and wood, with the Indians rawhide-wrapping them and decorating the sheaths.

They may seem somewhat prosaic, but the 'real' Old West wasn't a Louis L'Amour novel with big bowies and damascus blades.

Scouts Out!

1880s one from Sheffield England, as good as you get and never been abused with a power grinder.  To good to leave the kitchen though since the time I thought I lost it.  Wife just cut up ham with it.

 :)  Hey there Hi there again Deacon.  Yep, there is some fella advertising and making cylinders for Rugers.  I forget who he is and don't have his contact info.  I do know his cylinders cost an Arm, a Leg and yer first born.

Orphans often show on eBay.  Not real cheap either.

Oops.  Seams we have drifted this thread some.

Play Safe Out There

PS:  YES!!  You should, as soon as possible.  What were we talking about anyway??

 :)  Nah Abilene  ;)

The springs are actually metal.  One really fantastic piece of work.

Wowzers!!!

That's a simple design. It looks like it would fit on just about anything. You could make it come down a little farther on the sides so it doesn't use up so much lace. Thanks for the finished photos.

Hiya Coffin! I have run across some 'orphans' those presumably separated from Blackhawk conversions for sale in the past. I was not aware of aftermarket ones for the Vaquero/Blackhawk.

Just looking through my safe and I have a spare 44 magnum cylinder for a Vaquero. I was thinking the magnum case was bigger, but then looked at the dimensions and that coil work for reaming out to 44-40.

Wooden springs and everything!  I wonder if this is the same guy that made a wooden '51 Navy some years ago?
