Copperhead Rifleman's Knife with Sheath
Product No. 4926-005-016
This enhanced line of period knives is based on historic examples and styles found throughout the colonial and Fur Trade era. They are hand-forged from carbon steel, tempered to hold a good edge and finished with a nice, aged patina to give them that truly authentic look and feel! Further, each is fitted with a handle made form a period correct wood that is well documented. Sheaths are made from a higher quality, vegetable tanned leather in a nice, dark brown color and include a belt loop.
Long bladed knives were preferred by the riflemen and longhunters on the early Eastern frontier and this one fills the bill! Typical of many hand forged blades, this 8-1/2" slim, tapered one features a satin finish and some forging marks remaining. The genuine Curly Maple handle is fitted with a copper ferrule (guard) and secured to the round tang with an iron washer at the butt end of the handle with the tang peened in place to hold it. Furnished with its own fitted leather sheath, it is 13-1/2" long overall.
