Choctaw Native American Deer Hide Knife Sheath
Sheath Only! Knife Not Included!
This Native American Deer Hide Knife Sheath is a genuinely useful and collectible item. This knife sheath is made of genuine brain-tanned deer hide, which is a Native American technique of tanning that makes leather particularly soft and supple. It is also an expensive quality that has a nice smoked smell. The Apache-style sheath features some extra dressing, like genuine Mercury-head dimes converted to buttons. It has aged tin combs in a one inch fringe around the rim. The leather strap is 14" long with 2-1/2" twisted fringe extending past the rim. This leather sheath also has a 5-1/2" beaded tail and two twisted leather fringes reaching a further 5". This native american sheath features blue, maroon and lemon yellow beads lazy-stitched in angular patterns. This American Indian sheath is 7-1/2" long from knife tip to rim and will fit a knife blade 6-1/2" to 7-1/2". Any longer and you risk punching through the sheath. The interior of the rim is 1-7/8" wide. Hand-made by a Native American artist and signed "Osalita," this knife sheath is absolutely one-of-a-kind - the artist creatively designs as she goes.
