Gary Tingler and Casey McClure have created a this simple but extraordinarily well made hunting bag and knife set. The bag is made of a dark nicely grained buffalo leather with a matching strap. The edges are welted and show careful stitching, The shape has a nicely tapered bottom and there is a welted interior pocket with a brass button.
The Casey McClure knife is a wicked little thing showing Casey’s usual faultless craftsmanship. The poured pewter bolster and crowned antler handle give this knife a lot of style. The rawhide lined center seam sheath is attached to the back of the bag with the hilt riding conveniently over the bag.
