HANDLE, ORIGINAL SHEATH--OLD BUT MINT. HEIRLOOM PIECE FROM A LEGENDARY
Ralph Bone was from Texas and one of the Legends in the knife making
industry. He and G. W. Stone were partners for years. Stone was one of the
original founders of the Knife Makers Guild. George bought out Ralph--with
the understanding that he would no longer make knives. That lasted about a
year and Ralph started making knives again--no love lost between those 2.
Ralph eventually got out of the knife business and went full time into
making high end custom guns--his true passion. Ralph passed away in the
early 1990's so this is an exceptional piece for it's age.
