Yet another knife

I do love making "primitive" knives.

This is another example of a patch knife.

Like many of them, this one is made to be worn around the neck for easy access when reloading one's musket.

The sheath is white doe skin over hard leather with both bead edging and a peyote stitch rosette (a somewhat uncommon stitch these days)

The blade is forged from 1095 carbon steel and is sharp enough to shave the hair from your arm dry.

The handle is from American deer antler with a brass end cap (While I like Sambar stag antler, I prefer our own deer antler for early American knives).
