This classic of the American mountain man was big enough to ward off unruly beasts on the trail or at the local trading post. Coffin shaped hardwood handle is accented with solid brass furniture. A must have for every re-enactor or collector of American history. This is a classic design that is as functional as it is good looking. Rugged and solid in the hand. Comes with leather sheath.

"Very much better looking than expected from pics: I've seen this one for years in bad fuzzy pics on various knife sales sites, and it didn't look that appealing. This one needs the sharpening service if one wants it sharp as it has a 1mm thick edge. I have a belt grinder and I put on a good edge by myself, but not everyone has the equipment or skill for a DIY sharpening. Most daggers have a neutral near the guard balance point, but this Arkansas Toothpick has it's POB about 3" from the guard and the blade has a lot of blade presence: if I hold it with eyes closed it feels much more like a medium sized 10" bladed Bowie knife than a dagger, and it would have a lot more chopping power than most daggers. Grip construction seems rock solid and the wooden handle is very attractive. Obviously more a collectable knife today than a practical field or hunting knife compared to a Bowie, but in period, I can see where it would have been very effective as a hunting dagger to dispatch a wounded animal or a backup weapon in the American Civil War. ( Note in Europe, Africa or India a large dagger like this was popular when hunting dangerous game in the 19th century )." - Jean (5/5)
