TH-000

 

TH-001  Tomahawk Edge Guard   This handy leather device protects the edge of your tomahawk from becoming nicked - or from cutting you. Many sites now require reenactors to have guards on their edged weapons before participating in battle reenactments. Edge Guards come small (for Mouse ‘hawks), medium (for standard size ‘hawks – fits most competition ‘hawks), and large.   $5.00    TH-001

TH-002  Tomahawk Belt Loop   This simple device slides onto your belt and provides a safe place to store your tomahawk. It is a more comfortable way of carrying your ‘hawk than by carrying it between your belt and body.   $5.00

TH-004  Clasp Knife   This simple clasp knife has a straight blade with a clip point. This type has been unchanged in design for literally hundreds of years and is just as functional today as it has been throughout that long time period. The grip is wood, the liners are brass, and the blade is steel. Not much to it, and that’s exactly what makes it so practical.   $8.00

TH-005

TH-005  Soldier’s Clasp Knife   This knife is often associated with the American Revolutionary War period although they were in use both before and after that time period. Also sometimes referred to as “Barrel Leg Jack Knives” so called because of the design of the brass bolsters. The black grip panels are made of polished horn.   $8.00

TH-014  Bone Handled Soldier's Clasp Knife    Same as the TH-005 knife but with white bone grip panels instead of black horn. Note: Bone tends to develop cracks in it as it ages. This is normal and to be expected. Cracks also often develop where pins are used to hold the panels in place. Bone will turn color over time to a warm yellow or tan look. This is caused partly by time and by the oil in the user's hands. This unique patina sets the individual knife apart from all others.    $8.00

TH-015

TH-015  Pruning Knife   This small pruning knife has a blade length of 2 Ľ-inches and a closed length of about 3 inches. While it is a relatively small knife, it does a good job of peeling apples and would be well suited as a folding patch knife for the muzzleloader shooter.   $8.00

TH-018  French Amber Knife   This superbly made flint knife comes from France and is made of the world famous French Amber Flint. It was made by the same man who makes our French Amber Gun Flints, demonstrating that he is just as talented making flint tools as he is in making our gun flints. This knife is hafted in a piece of European elk antler and is every bit as capable of work as any other knife. If you are interested in primitive hunting with a stick bow and arrows tipped with stone points, this may just be what you need to round out your equipment.    $150.00

TH-019  VA Poll Ax - Forged    This is a finely crafted tool that differs from the ordinary tomahawk in that it takes a hatchet-style elliptical eye handle as opposed to the tapered handle most often seen on tomahawks today. This particular hatchet has been forged to a wider blade length for those who like this drawn out appearance. The square poll is suitable for pounding in tent stakes or the many other tasks that a hammer poll is put to in camp or on the trail. The handle is of straight grain hickory.    $55.00

TH-021  Fort Meigs Ax    The Fort Meigs Belt Ax is a small hatchet patterned after one found at the site of a military installation from the War of 1812, known as Fort Meigs, in northwest Ohio. It is typical of a style of belt ax in use in the late 18th and early 19th century. For hunters or trekkers, this lightweight little ax is perfect for carrying on a day's outing or longer. It is most useful for chopping light firewood, cleaning large game like deer and clearing shooting lanes over stands. This is a high carbon tool steel hatchet that is just as useful in the 21st century as it was in the previous centuries. Fourteen inches long. $35.00
Extra Handle $6.00

Configuration
TH-022  English Trade Knife    This hand forged knife is made in the USA of high carbon tool steel and is styled after the common types traded by English fur traders during the 18th and 19th centuries here in North America. The English style is square cut at the end of the full tang and the hardwood handles are attached with brass pins. Blade length is about 5 1/2 inches long while the overall length is about 9 1/2 inches. Various hardwoods are used for the handles and may be different than what is shown in the picture.

The knife maker decides what wood he uses for the handles and we do not try to influence his decisions - he only sends us fine looking knives, no matter what wood he uses. The beauty of this knife is in the simplicity of its makeup - it is a no-frills, utilitarian, medium-size knife that with proper care will last a lifetime and then be passed along as an heirloom!

Item
TH-024  Buffolo Skinner    This knife is hand made in the USA in a blade style preferred for skinning medium to big game - from deer and antelope to buffalo and moose! And while it is designed for skinning, it is just as useful in handling cutting chores in camp or in the home kitchen. It is called a skinning knife because it has an upswept blade that keeps the point from cutting through the skin when it is used to remove the hide from a large animal. The knife is hand forged of high carbon tool steel and will hold a razor sharp edge for your cutting tasks. This knife measures about 10 inches overall with the blade a little over 5 1/2 inches. The handles are hardwood and are affixed to the full tang blade with brass pins, giving a rugged, traditional appearance.   $35.00
