Prairiewind Rustic Mountain Man Knives are true masterpieces of handcrafted excellence. Made in the USA by master Artisan Erick Gfeller, each knife is uniquely forged and shaped without the use of patterns or templates, ensuring you own a truly one-of-a-kind piece of art.

The blade is forged using reclaimed carbon steel that is hardened and tempered. The handle is crafted from Maple hardwood, providing a rustic character and charm. Traditional oil and wax finish not only enhances its natural beauty but also protects it from the elements.

The sheath is designed to fit the knife perfectly and features an aged patina, deer skin style reminiscent of the old west or American frontier. It adds an authentic touch to the overall aesthetic.

I take great pride in my products and want you to be fully satisfied with your purchase. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out. For size reference, there is a photo of the knife next to a ruler.

Disclaimer: Please read before making a purchase

I want to emphasize that my knives are intentionally crafted in a primitive style, without the use of modern machinery or precise techniques. This results in a unique and artistic look, but it may not conform to conventional expectations. Please ask any questions or request additional pictures to ensure that you are fully informed before making a purchase. Also note that colors may slightly vary due to lighting conditions or the rendering capabilities of the camera. I strive to provide accurate representations but understand that slight variations may occur.

Each historically styled mountain man knife and sheath is handcrafted with a strong emphasis on authenticity. To achieve this, I meticulously apply a natural oil and wax sealant to both the knife and sheath. This not only imparts a stunning visual appeal but also allows the pieces to age and develop a nice patina over time. It's worth considering that these creations are best enjoyed in dry environments. If you do plan to venture into wet conditions, an extra layer of protection, such as Sno-seal or a similar product, can safeguard these exquisite pieces, much like you would care for any cherished leather item.

Thank you for supporting my small one-man shop, and your business is truly appreciated.
