This distinctive knife is a replica of a very old design dating back to the early 1700’s. Drawings and portraits from that time often portrayed Indians and Voyagers carrying a small sheath knife around their neck that was used to trim the linen patch of the muzzleloader. While hunting, wear it safely out of the way under your shirt. This knife is entirely hand made by an American replica knife craftsman and no two are identical. Only 6 3/4″ overall, the 3″ hollow ground blade is hand sharpened to a hair shaving, razor edge. It is finished with a pewter hilt and the mineralized walrus bone handle is fastened with copper rivets. The unusual and eye catching sheath is made by Alaskan natives from highly polished whale baleen and has a glass bead neck thong. Is it big enough? During the past years since it was introduced, this knife has dressed and skinned all big game in North America, including Alaskan brown bear and Alaskan/Yukon moose. The Bowhunters Neck Knife is now available in either classic, high carbon steel or AST 35 stainless steel. Both have excellent edge holding qualities. This is a custom collector knife at a production knife cost and one that you will be proud to own.
