    Fur Trade knife

    Havenít been on too many woods hunt this summer cause of the heat and humidity, but Iím glad I did recently.After a lack lustre couple of hours finding mostly bottle caps I found my one and only good find of the day.Its a Cartouche knife, which dates back to the fur trade period.Yeah I was drenched in sweat and had to deal with the biting bugs, but it was worth it.

    Hi mudflap, I’m not sure, I believe it’s a brass alloy with horn, bone, or wood "scales" (grips).
