I've never heard anything but good about Two Feathers!
If anybody is interested, the current issue of The Museum of the Fur Trade Quarterly has a nice article about a very old cartouche knife with a green bone handle with three pins, recovered from the site of an Arikara village on the Upper Missouri. The article has a short but detailed discussion and a very good photograph. The knife itself is remarkably well preserved.
Thank you my friend. It's nice to have the support of upstanding and knowledgeable folks like yourself.
I'd LOVE to see that article is there an online link to it? I have the Museum of the Fur Trade book by James A. Hanson, "Fur Trade Cutlery Sketchbook." It's been a great help to get design ideas from, but I'm limited to just designs from THAT, it's all I have. I'm always looking for better photos, designs, sketches, and information.
Thank you again.
