Back when my hands didn't cramp so bad I made a few knives - most have appeared on various auctions on archery forums. This is the last, and a very special one. Back in the beginning of Trad Gang I had a cyber friend "youngster" who called himself "Bunny Hunter". I mistakenly, referred to him as Bunny Hugger one time and it occasionly stuck to him. Though he was young and always short on cash he was always there to help me and others in "cheerleading" for all the various Raffles/Auctions/Causes held on TG for the kids. He left TG and went to Canada for awhile where a Canadian started teaching him knife forging. During that period of his life he would still occasionly lurk on TG and saw that I was crafting a few knives. He sent me the very first blade he crafted out of carbon steel. (We still communicate on a well known Social media forum - you should see all the weight he has lost.) This is the knife I fashioned from his gift blade. He scratched his donation of it to me on the tang but of course that is inside the antler handle. As I close in on 82 I am beginning to feel time creeping up on me. I want to see this gift from me, AND "Bunny Hunter", turned over to someone else now FOR THE KIDS - please help. I couldn't figure how to fashion a sheath for it, nor could I find one, but perhaps the winner can, if he or she wants one. the knobs and shape of the handle I fashioned help amazingly to hold the little short 2 1/2" blade in a hand comfortably.

You handle shipping, please.
