A Custom Frontier Belt knife with leather and rawhide

This frontier style knife was custom a custom.

The spear point style blade is about 6 inches long that has
been patina aged.

The handle is aged elk bone that has been hafted in elk
leather toward the forward portion of the handle and also
has tight stitched portion of leather.

The sheath has a hard core leather liner and has been wrapped
and cross stitched with aged rawhide and brain tan leather.
the brain tan lace has vintage trade beads and a antiqued tin cone
with horse hair.  This style sheath is made to be worn placed 
behind  or simply tucked behind your pants.

Also thought you would like to see a photo of some of the colors here  in
upstate NY.

Thank you
