Description: Daniel Winkler and Karen Shook work together to create knives that have a timeless beauty that will quickly become family heirlooms. Their name is well known in re-enactment circles throughout the world and movie buffs may recognize their work in films such as Last of the Mohicans. Their knives have an authenticity rarely found in other maker's work.
This primitive Oak Handled Belt Knife has a tremendous sense of presence. The carbon steel blade was forged to shape. Daniel convex ground the edge, leaving dramatic forge marks in the flats. The spine has been lightly fileworked for a secure thumb purchase.
The handle is formed from rustic oak and is attached using four carbon steel pins. A distal tapered tang results in a secure hand hold. The handle is extremely comfortable in the hand.
The knife is accompanied by a sheath by Karen Shook. The frontier style sheath is formed from rawhide and has a single seam. Antiqued copper pins follow the sinew sewn seam. Leather fringe is decorated with trade beads, tin cones, and horse hair. Accompanied by certificate from the maker.
