This is your chance to own a custom for less!!!
This Knife is what I want to carry when I´m in a canoe in Canada´s Backcountry, driving cattle or hunting big game.
I completely modified this skinner blade blank made from high carbon steel by Green River Knives, a company that you would have found traded and in use among tribes and trappers alike in North Americas wilderness as well as in most hunting cabins!
I always loved the back swept curve, flat grind and excellent slicing abilities of these knives, but the crude handles didn´t feel quite right...
Woodsmans Finest "Mississippi" Bowie
I cold blued this blade, to keep it from rusting, but this will create an even nicer patina over time when butchering meet and fish.
The handle was shaped in my signature style, inspired by classic Dog-Leg pocket knives, with a very positive hand purchase but great choke-up capabilities and thumb ramps for skinning and gutting.
The recurved tip of the knife keeps it from puncturing hides and torsos, when skinning but the added swedge gives it great strength when piercing!
I also added a ricasso choil like on all my knives for easier sharpening and esthetics.
The Deepcarry Sheath is made from Japanese Carving Leather. Hand stiched using awl and needle without drilling holes, so the hide closes up over the stitch.
I used finest Tiger Thread for the best result possible.
For a change I use the refinished flesh side for the back, contrasting the special belt loop and scout carry strap. The belt attachement is of course slightly above the hilt so you won´t feel the knife hitting you in the ribs!
The Sheath is hand cut,embossed and dyed. Edges are tripple burnished and sealed, which is the only way to properly finish a sheath that will last for decades and age with pride!
It features a variation of my WCS (Woodsmans Carry System), which allows for vertical, horizontal scout and cross draw or use on a Baldric Knife Sling, for added versatility in the woods.

That means higher shipping fees but peace of mind for you and me.
I don´t take responsibility for shipped items after I send them off.
Anything can be returned to me, if it is in its original state. I don´t refund shipping costs though.

Since I am the craftsman myself, all the items are described as precisely as they lie in front of me.
For a refund they have to be unused and undamaged and I don´t refund shipping and import costs.
Please keep in mind, that due to my overhead as a craftsman, refunds are a quite substantial, financial loss, so please buy consciously! Thank you!
