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 makers' work.
This Rustic Oak Damascus Belt Knife has a tremendous sense of presence. Carbon steels were forged into a many layered random pattern. The flats were textured to resemble the patterns of an old Nickelson file. The spine has been lightly fileworked for a secure thumb purchase.
The handle is formed from rustic oak and is attached using a central pin. The oak used for the handle was recovered from the Shook family cabin. 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. Leather fringe is decorated with trade beads and tin cones. The collar features porcupine quillwork.
Exceptional work throughout!
