Knife and Sheath by John Miller


I forged the blade from 1084, the handle is walnut with brass wraps, an iron guard and ferrule, and silver escutcheons.  The sheath is pine and sheet steel with a leather belt loop.  I put two opposing Osage orange springs in the sheath to firmly grab the blade.  Engraving on the pommel wrap mimics the holly inlays sometimes found on Federal era furniture.  The painting on the sheath is also inspired by Federal era painted furniture.
