Product Details

This is an extra fancy version of the typical, spear-point early style trade knife which were popular trade items with the Indians throughout the 1800s, heavily decorated with brass and steel pins in a rosewood handle. The blade is 7" long and comes with an authentic custom sheath patterned after a museum example. Knife includes sheath.

They were a common but important trade item offered by various fur trading firms, including the American Fur Company, the Northwest Company, Pierre Chouteau Jr. & Company and the Upper Missouri Company. Designed to compete with the Hudson's Bay Company's "Hand Dague", these were introduced in the 1790s. They continued in production with handles until about 1850 and continued to be supplied without handles until the end of the 19th century

Native Americans often imitated shapes from nature when they crafted objects. Carbon steel blade is of a type traded in the early years of Eastern American colonization.

Aki Trading Post's Daggers are authentic reproductions of a pre-1850s Native American knife style that took its name from the shape of the blade. Our primitive handmade trade knife is patterned after an old Indian made example that had wide distribution in the northern districts of the American fur fields. The 7" double-edged blade is hand forged from carbon steel with a 1/4'" Spine and finished off with beautiful, dark hardwood scales attached with heavy brass pins. Smaller decorative nails surround the pins, accenting the handle and creating an authentic style knife. Approximately 12" overall.

It is also the buyers responsibility to check their state laws regarding the purchase and possession of knives. The buyer assumes all responsibility for and damages that they might incur from their purchase or possession of a knife. No buyer of knives under the age of 18.
