    Howdy folks Two Feathers here. It’s been a little while. This time it’s a Nessmuk knife. Just in time for Christmas. The price is $150.00 + $10/00 s&h. All my prices are in USD$ The knife was named after the original designer George Washington Sears who called himself Nessmuk.

    He was a writer of letters and articles in the 1880’s for “Forest and Stream” magazine. He popularized canoeing and the self-guided canoe tours of the Adirondack Mountain lakes. He also wrote books about camping titled “Woodcraft” in 1884. They’re still in print today. Sears died in Wellsboro, Penn., May 1, 1890.

    Before his death, Sears became friends with a young Narragansett Indian boy named Nessmuk. Nessmuk taught Sears to be a woodsman. Not knowing exactly when, Sears took the pen name Nessmuk after his young Indian friend. Sears/Nessmuk had a love of cutting utensils; mostly axes and knives. Sometime in the 1880’s he designed what we call today, the Nessmuk knife. Sorry for the history lesson, but I felt that it needed to be told.


    This Nessmuk measures 7-1/2” in overall length with a blade of 3-3/4” long by 1-1/2” wide at the widest point. The blade is made of 3/32” thick 1095 High Carbon steel, plenty stout enough. The handle is made from sun bleached Mule Deer antler. The handle measures 3-3/4” long. It is 1/1/4” wide across the swell in the rear. It’s 1” wide where the handle meets the blade. This knife has that original Nessmuk curve to the blade that smoothly flows into the handle. The blade is shaving sharp and has my Two Feathers logo etched into it. The handle is held on with (2) 1/8” iron pins. This knife will dress anything from a Ground Squirrel to a Ground Hog or a Badger to a Buffalo.

    The sheath is made of 5 oz. vegetable tanned tooling leather, with a belt loop stitched to the back that will accept a 2” wide belt. There is a band of rawhide sewn around the sheath for a Mountain Man type period correct look. The sheath is hand stitched with Linen thread up the bottom half and artificial sinew the rest of the way up to the top. The sheath is a light Tan in color, while the rawhide remains natural. I’ve added a Scalp Lock, a Brass Bead, and a Coyote tooth as adornment. They’re attached with real sinew.

    If you need a great looking knife for your encampment or your next Black Powder hunting trip, this is the one for you. This knife is very much a PC looking piece, but will substitute very well for a modern hunting knife.

    I prefer PayPal, but will take money orders or personal checks. Personal checks will add about 2 weeks to the purchasing process.

    I now sell and ship to Canada, however, because of the deer antler handle and due to import/export laws concerning the sale of animal parts on the Black market and customs laws, this knife CANNOT ship anywhere outside of the continental United States! I ship same day as funds are received or checks clear; the exceptions are Federal Holidays, Sundays, severe weather, and PO hours.

    If you’re interested in my knife or have questions or comments, PM me here or email me davesmusic13@gmail.com

    God bless:

    I've said it before.... you will NOT be disappointed with Two Feather's products! Quality is definitely top shelf! Though I have not seen this knife personally, his roach belly knives are very well balanced and are SHARP!
    You can't find a better guy to deal with, either!
    God bless,

    Two Feathers, I like this knife but prefer a 5 in. blade could you manufacture the knife as shown in the for sale area but with a 5in. blade handled in antler either white tail or mulie. I do not need a sheath as I could make one myself, if this is possible please respond with the cost. Thank you for your time and considerations.
