" Black Squamish "
Price: 2 800 USD

This beautiful large knife is as mysterious as my beloved trout river. It is my favored, it is pleasure just to hold it .

I used only the best available materials . Extreme effort was made so the knife has the ancient character and soul.

The name " Black Squamish " comes from my favored fishing river in beautiful mountains of British Columbia, Canada.

Knife is heavy, Bowie type, but very well balanced and it is pure pleasure using it - it takes you back in time. Back to times when Mammoths were roaming.

The leather sheath is all hand made from top quality leather and is completely waterproof.
