Rich and Jeanne McDonald for "Roots" Mini Series

Belt Knife

Last August we were contacted about making some pieces for the upcoming mini series "Roots" that is to air on The History Channel and A&E starting Memorial Day weekend.  Along with these 8 pieces we also had to make duplicates of a couple of the knifes with dull edges and points.  Jeanne made the bags, the sheaths and she wove the powder horn strap and I did the rest of the work.  I also did some technical advisory work for the series concerning historical weapons.
