(Myself,High country knives and Chuck Burrows,Wild Rose trading company collaboration)
Blade is 8inch, W1 steel with false edge on spine with Chucks hand carved file work.
The Handle is Hand carved Rawhide wrapped Elk crown and Brass bolster with a domed silver eagle coin as a end cap inset into the crown.
Sheath is rawhide over bark tan with a brain tan cuff with historically correct iron tacks. The partially beaded sheath has a heat hardened bark tan leather liner with a deer rawhide cover and braintan buckskin cuff making for a very tough sheath designed for hard use that has the flavor of the Old West. Other decoration consists of iron tacks in two sizes and a criss cross alum tawed sheepskin wrap on the cuff.
The whole package is done in a 1850`s style SW Texas frontier style.
This is a tough user piece from chopping kindling to fine delicate skinning and a very nice balance as a fighter and is available for sale now.
This is the first collaboration between Chuck and myself - with more to come.
