Knives & Sheaths of the 18th Century Woodsman.
Recently I was lucky enough to find another period knife in a second hand shop. This French butcher knife cost me just $2.50.00 Aust. I wish I had thought to look for these when I lived in Englan, but that was a long time ago now.
The knife needed the blade reshaping due to wear. Fortunately I was able to bring it back to its original design without lossing much length. Here is the knife & the bark sheath or liner that I made to fit it, plus an earlier similar sheath & knife that also required some blade reshaping. I will also add the link to the short article I wrote on my blog.
My new knife & the finished sheath.
My hunting knife & sheath. The innner liner on this one is leather. Beading is French #7 white glass beads.
Sheaths of this era did not commonly (if at all) have a belt loop. The sheath was secured under the belt itself.
Regards to all, Keith.
