Fire Starter

Wade Hougham

Recommended Posts

The knife is 12 1/4" long with a 6 5/8" blade forged from cable. The handle is walrus tusk that was used as a fire starter. The bolster is musk ox and the spacers are buffalo horn. The guard is wrought iron from an old anchor chain.

The beautiful sheath was made for me by KT/Terry, who I would like to thank but words just aren't strong enough to show my appreciation. The sheath is a cream color elk hide wrapped over cow hide. The sheath also has original beads from KT's Native American tribe.

This one is going straight into my collection. :)

If you can not find peace within yourself, it is useless to look elsewhere.

Dang, that's cool all around! The extremely white leather and the artifact handle in particular stand out, but all of the elements on their own and together.

Where do you keep scoring these cool artifact ivories? Cool!

Alan I get them from Mark Knapp. When I bought these I got 4 others also. I wasn't going to buy them but Wade saw some thing I didn't so I gave them to him for a gift. Glad I did . He nailed it right on. KT
