Lakota Knives

Does anyone have info on Lakota knives?

Anything historical . . . or owner related.

How long have they been around?

Are they a good quality knife?


I purchased a Lakota finwing for my daughter a couple of years ago at a second-hand/junk store. Judging from the appearance of the sheath the knife had already seen substantial use.

The knife has proven easy to sharpen. It takes and keeps a good edge. The design of the handle and blade shape make for a particularly secure grip. It was the blade of choice when I let the kids do some pumpkin carving last October. The knife is holding up well under hard (read kid who likes knives) usage.

I give the knife high marks in materials, design, and execution
