One of our blacksmiths friends made up these fine little patch knives by reworking some old stock, drop-forged Solingen steel blades and giving them a nice, hand-forged finish. The blades are 3-1/4" long and feature an integral bolster, and they are sharp! The curly maple handles have been stained with nitric and oiled, for a great traditional period finish. The sheaths are custom made from vegetable tanned leather and are hand-sewn. These are great little patch, bag or neck knives and each one is slightly different.
