A very fine and original 19th/20th Century Plains Indian Knife & Tacked Brass Leather Sheath. With wooden multi-riveted handled butcher's knife and distinctive thick brown leather scabbard with numerous brass tacks to one side. These knives and scabbards were particularly associated with the Blackfoot tribe of Alberta, Canada and Montana, in the United States. Scabbard is specially designed with a separate carrying handle - this seems to be a particular style associated with these Indian tribal knives. The knife is sharpened to one edge and double-edged towards the point.
Knife and scabbard in excellent condition
Condition of the knife and scabbard is very good and the leather is still stiff and strong. All the original stitching remains and is in good condition - no loss. The knife also retains most of the original darkened finish to the blade. Length of the blade is 10 inches (15.5 inches overall). Length of the scabbard is 16 inches. A very fine piece. These knives are quite scarce and seldom found in this condition.
