Hand Forged Knives - Longhunter's Knife
Product No. 4928-005-006
Produced by an accomplished knifemaker, these fine knives
are made of 1095 carbon steel, which is known for its edge
holding ability. Each blade is hand forged, hand filed
and then heat treated with multiple quenches, the same way
the old ones were made. Handles are then selected to
enhance the looks of each blade.
The handle of this Longhunter's model is made of
select, curly maple and acid stained in the traditional
manner. The "birds head" shape of the handle is an early
French style that was popular on the frontier in the 18th
and early 19th centuries.
Sheaths are custom fitted and finished, being hand
sewn with linen thread and made of vegetable tan leather
so as not to discolor the blades.
Longhunter's Knife - 5-1/2" Blade with
French style curly maple handle; 10" overall.
