All of my items are handmade & many of them are truly one of a kind which means that no two are exactly alike.

Because each one of my items are handcrafted one at a time, no two are 100% identical. I consider my items as art forms made in the centuries old ways which means there may be natural variations that one might consider a flaw but are actually inherent in the making of the piece, just as they were centuries ago. My items are created exactly as they were centuries ago. We might look at a piece from centuries ago may it be a drum, war club, knife, pipe, necklace, etc & think it's not perfect but actually it is, it's the hand crafted nature & techniques that the Native Americans used & which I use today with pride, skill & confidence.

Thank you 😊 Looks great 👍

This knife is beautiful. The bluing and the handle are both very pleasing to look at, and the sheath is simple yet I’ve found if I run my hand up the sheath and grab the end of the handle I can pull the knife out with a full grip on it. I plan to carry this knife on my belt, and the idea of having a piece of history in my daily kit is exciting to me. Thank you so much!

this was one of two knives I ordered from Aki from their sales. While it was duller than its counterpart LET ME BE CLEAR: this knife is still sharp enough to hurt you very seriously out of the box. It is not pop hairs off your arm sharp, but it has an edge and WILL cut you if you are not careful. Sheath is nice though knife sits REALLY deep in aforementioned sheath. I might be contacting a leather maker I know to make a sheath for this knife depending on how much I like carrying it. If I don't carry it as an EDC though I will be honest, the sheath is perfect. But for something on my belt.. it's a TAD hard to draw and safely re-sheath. Also very slight worry it'll eventually cut its stitching out (not sure if this is possible though, it does not APPEAR to be)
