 This early American Long Hunter knife was made by Gary Kelley from Dendritic D2 steel. The blade is hardened to Rockwell 59, and is etched to reveal the dendritic crystaline structure. The handle is deer bone with a rawhide wrap. The sheath is Kelley made blacktail deer rawhide over saddle horsehide. The lace is rawhide, and the dangles are made with hand-forged copper cones Kelley made for the coyote fur fluffs. The escucheon plate is copper, engraved "Gary Kelley 2004". This was the knife Kelley used in the OKCA Sharpness contest in 2004.  SOLD
