ABC Wednesday - K is for Knife Hilt



K is for Knife Hilt............



the silver hilt on a large knife



The boys have plenty of knives for hunting and fishing and each one has it's own job.

There are knives that fold and there are ones that are straight.

Some have thick, wide blades, other have fine, thin ones.

Some of the handles are metal, some are wood, and this one is rubber - it has a good, secure feel when you grip it.

It is one of my favorites, and call me strange, but the thing I like the best about it is the pretty little "S" curve that the hilt has.

It is rather fancy and it reminds me of an old fashioned one - like something that Robin Hood might have used when he wasn't using his bow and arrows.

The boys have put this one aside for me to use.

It's a pity, the thing will stay as new as the day they bought it. The only "use" it will get from me is as a model for a photo.




This is the fourth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.

  1. Hmmm, it is a beautiful photo and no doubt a beautiful knife, but there is something about a knife, that is not a kitchenknife, that gives me the shivers.

  8. It's a pretty knife - though I'm not fond of rubber handles myself. I can see that they're safer, they just don't feel right.

    It looks very sharp!
