Up for bid from Hand Sewn Leather by Robert Jones

Condition: Both knife and sheath are new, never used.

This set is a historically authentic replica of a Nessmuk Skinner. This name comes from the woodsman George Washington Sears. He was given this name by a tribe of Native Americans that he lived with for a time. It means Wood Duck.

It’s great for collectors and anyone who wants a hand made knife and sheath for a very reasonable price.

These knives are sharp and they stay that way a long time. They are used by outdoorsmen all over the United States . I have field tested these knives and they simply cannot be beat for the price.
