Very nice work! Great work on leather and blade and handle. Looks time period original. Thank you for pictures of the original. Pictures like that of the original makes me wonder how much human blood was on that blade and the adventures it had and where it traveled.

I live in Cody but I've never seen his bowie knife. What wing of the museum is it in? I've been to his grave at the old trail town.

Well, if you are selling it... I'll take it.

I have a good friend who would have been a mountain man like JJ if he was born 200 years ago.... one of our favorite things to say to each other is "can you skin griz pilgrim?"

I'd then give it to him.

Yes, that was... I guess I need to private message Saffarikid....

I had to go look up Jeremiah Johnson and do some research.... one of the books the movie is based on I read almost exactly 45 years ago when I was at the Military College of S.C. (The Citadel) and supposed to be studying for final exams for that semester..... Reading that book instead of studying was probably one of the best things I've done in this life.... I'm pretty sure I would not be here otherwise....
