The Knife That Killed A Lion

It was a simple kitchen/butcher knife that he had built a sheath for. Today, the Forschner 6" stiff wide-bladed boning knife is available for about $20.00. Mine is the only knife I use in the kitchen and I've had it for about 17 years. I refresh the edge with a file every couple of months.
To paraphrase an old friend: The settlers, pioneers and mountain men who tamed this country used knives that you can buy today for about the price of a pack of cigarettes.
