Description of the Product

This type of knives are often called "trade knives" because knives like this were carried and sold by the French Colonial fur traders during the American Colonial period. Carrying, selling or bartering with knives or with just the bare knife blades was common practice and easier than carrying money. The value of paper notes or metal coins was debatable on the frontier where native Americans and frontiersmen and pioneers lived, but a good knife was useful and valuable to anyone. One of the largest companies bringing knives to these new colonies was Hudson’s Bay Company.

This is short, easy to use, all-purpose knife with a slightly curved blade that can be used as a skinner knife in hunting, camping and bushcrafting. Smallish handy knives like this can even also be used to carve various objects out of wood, including canoes and paddles, and to hollow out wooden bowls and ladles. This was one of the selling points of the originals.

This knife has full tang handle with polished wood scales on either side attached with brass rivets. Knife comes with a hand-crafted leather sheath. The knife slides firmly and snugly into the sheath that has wide belt loop stitched to the sheath. Nice everyday tool made to be used. This is a 100% handmade item and each item will have it's unique small differences from other pieces. The overall look, feel and size however is the same for each piece.

Paikkakunnalla ollessani ja keskiajasta kiinnostuneena täällä oli pakko käydä. Aivan upea ja todella monipuolinen kauppa! Ystävällinen ja mukava myyjä neitonen esitteli minulle Etelä -Tirolilaisen mallin mukaan taidokkaasti valmistettua kypärää, josta tein myös kaupat. Liikkeen omistaja ei myöskään säästänyt vaivojaan esitellessään minulle haarniskavarustuksen eri osia. Erittäin asiakaslähtöistä palvelua! On todella hienoa, että tällaisia erikoisliikkeitä maastamme vielä löytyy, tämäkin kuulemma ainoa laatuaan. On varmaa, että vierailen tässä liikkeessä toistekkin! Täältä löytää uskomattoman paljon myös koriste-esineiksi ja lahjoiksi sopivia tavaroita, joten suosittelen tätä kaikille sellaisiakin etsiville.
