Here is another collaboration between myself and sheath-maker John Cohea. I'm really enjoying these period style joint projects with John. I hope you like it as well.







This small Belt/Neck Knife has a 3 3/8" blade forged from "Chainsaw" canister damascus with rough forged flats. The guard is "wagon wheel" wrought iron with file work accents and a black spacer behind. The handle itself is stabilized Deer leg-bone with a raw-hide grip-wrap in the center. The overall length of this knife is 7 1/4". The sheath is made from vegetable-tanned leather, covered in rawhide on the back, and smoked brain-tanned buckskin for the front panels and fringe. The front flap is hair on deer leg rawhide with the dew claws attached, and the belt loop is also hair on deer leg rawhide. The sheath is further accented with horse-hair & trade beads. The removable neck lanyard is also brain-tanned buckskin.
Price, with sheath: $475.00, plus shipping.

Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card & Paypal are all accepted (Paypal only for international orders please) and my standard guarantee applies which means as long as I can still stagger into the shop & work, it's covered.
