Hunting Knife

Looking for: Seeking small to medium size hunting knife, preferably with antler or bone handle, that would be appropriate for deer hunting and look reasonably period accurate (though I'm not in any sort of competition here). While I certainly appreciate the high-end work of some of our esteemed craftsmen, I don't have a large budget for this. I can make the leather sheath to accompany this knife, as it will be sewn into a bag.

I have two to chose from. Both have blades about 4" long, one has an Ebony handle; the other handle is spalted Maple with colored spacers (I made both handles.
The Ebony handled knife has a unique walnut sheath that can be easily covered with thin leather.
Your choice (if you like either) - $50 + $12 shipping via USPS Priority Mail.

If you can't find something you like or can afford here, just search ebay for Old Hickory and get one of their older knives for around 10 dollars. From my understanding, a 7"-10" Old Hickory butcher knife would be a common pattern for the period.
