    I know this is a shotgun sight, but a lot of you also like and own knives.

    I am looking for F.J.RICHTIG knives and sheaths. This knife was made in Clarkson Neb. The sheaths were made in Omaha by Alford Cornish.

    Some will be marked on the handle, others will be marked on the guard FJR CLARKSTON NEB.


    I am also interested in other customs by the old makers, such as Ruana,Morseth,Nichols and Randall to name a few.

    John...did Richtig ever give out his secret blade tempering formula? From what I have read, he was also quite a showman, pounding his blades through an axle at the county fair!

    From your list of makers, you are on the high-end of the collection game.

    Good luck!

    Charles,

    From what I have read he took his secret to the grave. There have been some who have tried to duplicate his process, but none have been able to.

    Yes I like knives from the older makers.

    Thanks and shoot good
    John

    I just read and article in the local paper about his nephew. I guess he is also making knifes in Clarkson Ne.
