Broomstick handled war knife

Recommended Posts

Hello this is Bernie again posting for my relative teypohsweepeehltseen "bo" who does not have access to internet.

 

Introducing "Tlamahkahskah'mahtsahton" (little pronghorn) up for sale.

 

A robust 10 1/4" war knife with a subtle clip point blade, hammer forged in a clay charcoal fired forge from recycled d2 die steel. A very difficult task working with d2 steel in a charcoal fired forge. One of the only 3 knives bo has ever made from scrap steel made of d2/Die steel and those will most likely be the last. "Tlamahkahskah'mahtsahton" features two horn "skull crushers" at the butt of his tang with a thick tang measuring 5mm at it's handle drawn out to a 4mm thick blade but maintaining most of it's weight and girth in the center and middle of the blades mass.

 

This knife features a traditional broomstick style handle with traditional pronghorn skin rawhide sleeves and brass pinwork on handle carved from beautiful dead fallen Arizona Bigtooth Maple wood branch gathered years ago in eastern "Arizona's" pine/oak forest land. Handle was naturally sealed in beeswax/mineral oil/chia oil/juniper copal. Sheath was made from old saddle leather, which was naturally sealed in beeswax/mineral oil/chia oil and then capped, riveted and adorned in traditional brass-work made from recycled antique brass.

 

Bo is asking $1000 + shipping for knife with sheath. Includes a canister of natural sheath and handle salve bo makes for his knives and basic sheath and knife warranty and care instructions. Sheath was made for a right handed, left hip, forward grip cross draw, or a left hip, left handed reverse grip draw. Belt loop can fit belts up to 1 1/2" wide. Send me a message if interested and if you have any questions or comments please feel free to share. Thank you
