Harvey McBurnette, Eagles Nest, NM THE KNIFE: , sole authorship front lock, canoe shape, engraved with fileworked liners, blade back, and backspring, handles are colorful exotic pearl. 3 1/2 closed, 6 1/2 open. THE MAKER: Harvey McBurnette was one of the first sole authorship knifemakers--as he had the artistic ability to do acid etching, scrimshaw, filework, engraving, and produce some of the very best folding knives and interframes. His New Mexico era knives are still comparable with anything today. He is credited along with W. T. Fuller with introducing the front lock to handmade knives, a revived concept copied by Al Mar when he produced his first line of knives, all with front locks. With his passing the demand for his finite number of knives has many collectors seeking his knives.
