Does anyone have a good picture of the original Tarzan knife that Johnny Weissmuller used in his movies? Might be a neat build.

That looks like it in that article. I took some pictures of it on the Tarzan movie today on TIM. Not the best, but the handle looks correct.

Looks like an aluminum cast head. Thoughts?

Cool knife indeed, but the flared out guard and butt aren't something we would re-produce....

I wonder if Ruana would cast the aluminum handle since they do for their knives.
