Octagonal Handled Scalp Knife by Todd Bitler

The hand forged blade with classic trade knife shape. The handle is hand made from osage orange into a octagonal shape ending in two wedding bands. The handle has been notched and blade slid into handle and held in place with two copper pins; it has beeen stained dark and highlighted with wear patterns. The blade is very thin and tapers from the back to the tip which makes for a well balanced knife (not blade heavy or handle heavy) and is aged and stamped with touchmark.
