Cactus Custom Knives 3" Hunter / Cross Cut Spalted Maple / Polished 154CM ( Pre Owned )
Loyd was raised in Odessa, Texas, and lived there for 62 years. He attended Texas Tech University and graduated in 1966. After graduating, he spent the majority of his time working as a public accountant, while also working for oil-related businesses as both owner and director.
Loyd's love for knife making began in 1976 on a 6x48 Sears Grinder he borrowed from his dad. This hobby continued with him during his years working as a public accountant, until the hobby turned into a full-time passion in 1989.
Today, Loyd calls Marble Falls, Texas, his home. He is a voting member of the Knifemaker's Guild, and his work is present in collections worldwide.
This is Loyd's small hunter. A 3" polished 154CM blade leads to a high polish nickel bolster with cross cut spalted maple scales riveted to the tapered tang. A beautiful and very useable tool.
