2020 CLA Live Auction: HUNTING BAG AND KNIFE by Gary Tingler and Casey McClure


Bag: 8 1/2" wide by 9 1/2" deep. Patch knife  9" long.

            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.

            This finely crafted Southern bag and knife will compliment any gun.  And fortunately there are a number of horns in the auction and at the CLA show you can use to round this out.
