This is an original Montana Territory Knives of Bozeman, Montana knife with an excellent, Yellowstone National Park inspired, walking Great American Bison Buffalo scrimshaw artwork. This knife is truly a work of “Montana” art as it shows the iconic Buffalo scrimshaw set on Buffalo Horn grips and a forged “rustic” Damascus—a tribute to the wilderness of our state and scrimshaw artwork Native American Indian heritage. The blade has been forged from 1095HC (High Carbon) steel and 15N20 Nickel Carbon, which is then heated and folded into 396 layers, creating the astounding “Damascus” steel. The knife shows a wonderful ladder Damascus pattern. The hollow grind full tang blade has been paired with a set of nice white wild Buffalo bone grip scales, which are secured to the piece using two mosaic pins and lanyard loop. The knife also features a set of polished stainless-steel bolsters and pommel with a comfortable finger well. The tang has been artfully hand vine filled. The grips have also artfully been scrimshaw etched with image of the American Buffalo. The blade is stamped with the outline of the state of Montana "MT" in the outline with "Bozeman MT" underneath. The knife has been paired with a Great American Bison Buffalo leather hand crafted tooled sheath and stamped "MT Bozeman MT" with the outline of Montana. The knife measures 10" long with the blade being 5 1/4" long.
