The bone handle and full tang provide a comfortable and sturdy grip while the over 5-inch blade length makes it ideal for hunting and survival use. This vintage knife is an original piece, hand forged. It was found near the Wind River on the Shoshone Indian Reservation. I do not believe the sheath is the original, this was part of my father's collection and he has since passed away. If you have any questions I will do my very best to answer them correctly, but as I said this was part of my fathers estate.The knife is perfect for collectors and knife enthusiasts alike, with its unique features and history. The brand's legacy adds to its value and makes it a great addition to any collection.
