Description :

For sale $80.00 + $8.00 s&h 1 patch, camp, hunting knife. This knife was designed and made by me with the Black Powder shooter in mind. It incorporates a short ball starter built into the hilt end of the handle. The 1095 high carbon steel blade measures 4-1/4 "long X 1-1/4" wide X 3/32" thick and is very sharp. It has a forge patina and it will rust. It has some rust on it now, and I'll remove that before I ship it. I prefer high carbon steel for its authenticity in period work and its ease of maintenance. The knife is easily sharpened to a razor edge. The handle is White Tail antler, pinned with 1/8" iron pins. The sheath is made of 7-8 oz. top quality vegetable tanned leather. It's adorned with " antique nickel spots (or tacks) in the Croix De Lorraine pattern of the 16th. Century French Fur trapper era. The sheath is Saddle Tan in color and is stitched with a cross pattern reminiscent of the Mountain Man period. Sheath has a belt slot that will easily accept a 2" wide belt.
This knife will look great on you at the next rendezvous. It is period correct for the fur trapper era and will set you apart from your fellow camp participants and shooting competitors. It's equally at home cutting patches at the muzzle or cutting the hide off of a moose. I prefer PayPal, but money orders will work. I'll take bank or personal checks, but the personal checks will require an additional 2 to 3 weeks for processing. Once your check clears, the knife will be on its way to you that same day. As always, thanks for looking.
