With a carbon steel blade that was hand-forged, the knife is a rare and very welcome find with rosewood handle scales and strongly reinforced with a clad-steel bolster. Hafted over a full and tapered tang using three steel pins, it comes in a VERY handy size, measuring 9.75" long with a SUPERB 4.75" carbon steel blade that is stiff enough to be carried into the field for use as a hunting knife. Professionally edged to be RAZOR sharp, it performs well enough to thrill even the most jaded user--just a pleasure to use.
It has the kind of heft and authenticity that will surely get its user noticed at any rendezvous, black powder event or other living history recreation. Its beautiful design just invites the hand to hold and use it.
It's clear the piece was meant to be as beautiful as it is useful, and it is VERY useful! It's as strong and solid as a tank and will last a couple of muzzle-loading lifetimes if properly maintained.Without a doubt, though, the co-star of this sale is the incredibly fine sheath the knife is housed in which appears to be original and fits the knife perfectly. It's of superb quality in every detail, tacked with copper and brass, as you can see. I don't know the age of the knife but it's no newer than the early 1900's, probably considerably older judging by its clad-steel boslters. Condition of both knife and sheath is superb.
Both knife and sheath have excellent materials, craftsmanship and design, and would function today as well as they did in their day. Whether you want them as trade bait on your blanket, at the next black powder/rendezvous, for use in the field, or simply to display it among your finest collector pieces, this is an exceptional knife that is sure to get noticed wherever it goes. An heirloom quality piece in heirloom quality condition, and and something you'll rightly be proud to pass along to future generations.
