|HERSHEL HOUSE MEDIUM SIZE WOODBURY STYLE KNIFE***SALE PENDING***|
Very usable medium size Woodbury style knife. Blade forged from a piece of hay rake tine, tough steel probably 1095. 5 3/4" from tip to poured pewter double collar. 9 1/2" overall. Three quarter tang pinned far back in a deer crown handle for maximum strength. Silver dime end cap engraved by me with the hunting star for good luck. Hershel House
|HERSHEL HOUSE WOODBURY EARLY PIONEER STYLE BELT KNIFE***SALE PENDING***|
Belt knife, Woodbury early pioneer style. Blade forged from 1084 spring stock, tempered tough and limber! 71/8" from tip to poured pewter collar. 11 1/4" overall. Three quarter tang. Deer crown handle. A slight bend to the right near the crown, feels comfortable in a average size right or left hand. Silver dime end cap. I can engrave in old script two initials of new owner or the hunting star of left as is with my basic border. I like to pack a knife just like this size. In the past I have made me several! Would get hard up for money and sell them, lost a couple in the woods, my Cousin Willie's in the river and the Law got one (another story). My friend and fellow (old timey type) knife maker Joe Seabolt took our knife forging seminar a couple of times. Several years back Joe made me up a basic Woodbury knife and sheath. He claimed over time and hard use I had worn the (coyote stabbing) blade to half its thickness. He made me another just this size. Many thanks, both good knives. Hershel House

|Relief Carved Longrifle by John Bonewitz - signed "IB"|
Here's a magnificent, relief carved longrifle by John Bonewitz. Fabulous "Womelsdorftown" patchbox, beautifully engraved silver star cheekpiece inlay, engraved silver thumbpiece, barrel signed "IB" with rampant lion at breech, gorgeous engraved toeplate, early, beveled sideplate. Also relief carved around and behind tang; forestock moulding, too. Re-converted with a "Ditchburn" lock. Some small wood replaced around the lock, one long sliver missing on backside of forestock, old-time repair at muzzle cap. Barrel has been re-browned while in the gun and possibly some touch-up on the original stock finish. Overall length is nearly 58" and barrel is 43" long. Big smoothbore. Original ramrod with a worm. It has always been my opinion that this gun was carved by Peter Berry, jr. in collaboration with John Bonewitz. See Kindig's book for VERY similar carving on a Peter Berry rifle. However, other knowledgeable collectors who own similar and better Reading rifles have suggested that Berry stocked and built this gun circa 1800 using slightly earlier Bonewitz hardware. Either way, this is a wonderful gun. Note the horns on the sideplate (a Berry or Fichthorn feature) and the positioning of the patchbox (a Berry feature).
