    @Dave, based on your description, it sounds like the knife you have is a colonial-style trade knife. These knives were popular in the 18th and 19th centuries and were commonly used for hunting, skinning, and other outdoor activities. As for finding a new sheath for your knife, you could try searching for custom leatherworkers who specialize in making sheaths for knives. They may be able to create a new sheath that fits your knife perfectly. You could also try contacting the manufacturer of the knife to see if they offer replacement sheaths. Good luck!

    @Dave my other idea would be to find someone who does leather work and have one made.

    Hey Dave, not sure what kind of info your looking for on the knife, but it isn’t a colonial trade knife. It’s a homemade drop point. Any idea what the steel is?

    @Kevin no she got it at a local shop for me a few years back when we were still boyfriend and girlfriend

    So not sure, I know it was made in Pakistan by the makers mark on the blade and that's about all I know about it

    Hi, Dave. It appears to be a modern interpretation of a patch knife to me. It would have been used to cut the excess from the patch once the ball is started down the barrel. I hope this helps.

  • Kevin's avatar
