Customer Pictures

This page will be dedicated to pictures sent in by Lucas Forge customers. It can be a hunting picture or a picture that means a lot to you. Send in your pictures to lucas@customhuntingknives .org

If they are in good taste and relevant to the site I will get them posted up. Also please note that some of the hunting pictures are a little bloody for those of you that might be effected by such things, that’s just how it is.


And the winner of the 2017 Lucas Forge drawing is…

Custom Knives, Hunting Knives, Lucas Forge, Deer Hunting Knife, Hand Forged Knives“Please find attached my son’s 10pt deer that was shot in the Catskill Mountains in upstate NY. The knife worked great in field dressing the deer. We hunted all day together missing out on a real nice bear in the morning but ending the afternoon with this dandy.” Congratulations, Cory!

Frontier Knife, Lucas Forge, Custom Knives, Hunting Knives“Went to go deer hunting and the wasps would not let me in the stand…so I sit on a ridge, got a small stick and carved out a small squirrel gambrel!!…I used my Lucas Forge large frontier with the walnut wood that came from “Buzzardtown” NC!! Love this knife!” -Mike from NC

“Great style, quality, and craftsmanship. Your knives look so good, I find I don’t always want to take them out for the dirty jobs… but they are workers, and that is where they excel most. Cheers.” -Peter

Custom Hunting Knives, Mike Yancey, Pinehollow Longbows, Hunting Knives, Traditional Knives, Hand Forged KnivesCustom Hunting Knives, Hunting Knives, Lucas Forge“My Elk River is a workhorse! I can’t count the animals that I have skinned and broke down with this one knife. Very rarely do I ever have to put it on a stone even after the three animals hanging in the picture, all I have to do is touch it up with a steel and its ready to go again. Wild hogs seem to be the toughest on a knife but they are no match for my Elk River!” -Mike of Pine Hollow Longbows

“Here are a couple of nice animals that I cut up and skinned with your knife. These were taken with a 270 in New Mexico and Maine. I am going back to Maine in a week and a half for moose and that knife will be with me as always. I was a butcher for 35 years and have cut with many different knives but this the best I have ever had.” – Mike Y.
