I have a knife meant for carving.
I need to find more blades for it and I know I have seen it somewhere??
I think I saw it somewhere related to Lumberjocks but cannot remember where nor can I find it in any “past” search! My father used it in his leather carving!
Any help would be appreciated!

Have one, it came from Lee Valley, the blades are generaly ground down from power hacksaw blades

A version is still being sold, it’s a Murphy” brand..

“This handsome, rugged knife is made from a block aluminum casting with walnut inserts finished with tung oil.

The 4-5/8” long handle is unusually large yet quite comfortable. The knife set includes a bevel-point and a sharp-point blade, both 6-1/2” long, plus the handle.

Made in USA.

Knife Set
38D04.11 $31.50

A. Mill-Knife Handle only 38D04.05 $18.80

B. Bevel-Point Blade only 38D04.02 $7.90

C. Sharp-Point Blade only 38D04.03

And there’s a prize ?

Actualy I quite like mine, the brass and dark walnut scales version, it dosen’t see carving use much, mainly it’s a go to utility shop knife.
Something about the big meaty grip !

They are..but, just saying, don’t drop it on your foot..
It won’t land point down..and it’s heavy and solid..

I knew someone here would know! Thanks Glen!
I love mine too, it works very well (and it was my fathers too) and have reground a few of the blades to shapes suited to specific uses.
