Howdy folks, Two Feathers here:

Here’s a well built, sharp, ruggedly simple knife, at a good price.

It’s a beautiful Scalping knife with a Birdseye Maple handle. The price is $160.00 s&h with insurance.

The knife is 9.25” (9-1/4”) long. It has a 5-5/8” long by 1-1/4” wide 3/32” thick 1095 Carbon Steel blade. This thing is scalpel sharp!

The handle slabs are Birdseye Maple. I updated the entire knife and sheath. I removed all the “Shine” then did the Aqua Fortis thing and sealed it with Linseed oil. The scales are held on with (6) 1/16” Solid Brass pins.

The sheath HAD been “painted” in the Native American Parflech style of the Northern Plains tribes. So I removed as much of the paint as I could then dyed the sheath Chocolate Brown. The original Parfleche incised lines are still there, giving the sheath that, “it’s been reworked by a mountain man in the Rockies in 1790” look. The sheath is made of 6 oz. veg, tanned tooling leather. The sheath is water molded for a perfect fit. It has a 2-5/8” long belt or sash slot. It has 2 rows of stitching. The first is an X stitch all along the outside edge. Then there’s a second short line of saddle stitching along the inside edge of the belt slot. This short row of stitches helps strengthen the belt slot and keeps the welt tight. There is a welt to protect the stitches from the cutting edge. The sheath is signed and has my logo stamped on it. This definitely looks 1700's handmade and is one solidly built knife and sheath that will outlast you!

This is also one will fit right in with that Mountain Man fur trade/trapper era persona at your next rendezvous, or just sitting in camp around the fire. The entire outfit looks like it was an Indian trade reworked to match the mountain man life style. It’s Shaaaarp and it will become your goto knife for field dressing, hunting or everyday camp chores.

If interested PM me.

As always, thanks for looking.

God bless:

Two Feathers
