Dana Acker (The Acker Forge, Mt. Airy, NC) forged this frontier style camp knife with Elk bone handle partially covered with stitched Bison hide and wrapped with hemp cord, then sealed with pitch. Chuck Burrows (WildRose Trading Co., Durango, CO) fashioned the period sheath complete with Rattlesnake and Buffalo dressing. There's a lot more to this stunning collaboration than I could feature in one image. Hopefully I've managed to convey at least some of its abundant style and energy.
