OVERVIEW

This Obsidian Leaf Blade knife is hand knapped and crafted of all-natural materials, the same way Native Americans made knives for survival centuries ago. Tony Stanfield makes these flint-knapped knives by hand, using beautiful Obsidian (volcanic glass) for the blades. He then selects a stag crown that best compliments the blade and binds the two pieces the same way pre-historic cave dwellers did - with natural sinew. Each knife is a unique piece of art, with a blade and handle that look like no other. The butt of each handle is etched with a primitive wolf paw. Includes a small section of antler shaped into a simple prop so you can stand the knife for display (please see photos). Since this knife is all-natural, color, grain, and exact size will vary from photo.

Please note: Obsidian color may vary from the photo. We are not able to guarantee a specific obsidian color. Obsidian is formed from the erupted lava of a volcano. Although black is the most common color, it can be brown, tan, or green. When hematite (iron oxide) is present, it produces red and brown varieties. If tiny gas bubbles remained in the lava flow during crystallization, green varieties were created, as well as others with a golden sheen, or types with dark bands or mottling in gray, green, or even yellow.
