Description: I managed to get a hold of the leg bone and legskin of a red deer stag, which are exceptionally hard to source here in the U.S. The leg bone became the handle of a beautiful bone knife, painted in acrylics and decorated with chocolate brown deerskin and braided brown waxed linen cord. I painted the cow bone blade with a stag hoofprint and a line of dots up the center, just on one side.
The sheath is made of more deerskin, and the tanned red deer legskin, with the complete hoof. I added detailing and belt loops made of more braided cord, and completed the sheath with a gorgeous handmade ceramic stag button.
This is by far the most elaborate knife I\'ve done; it would be excellent for ritual work, shamanic and neopagan alike, as well as make a beautiful display on an altar or shrine. Invoke the Horned God, or call on the totemic Stag, this will be an excellent sacred knife for the working!
SOLD (but can make another)
