East Tennessee Wildlife Knife and Base
The base is a piece of driftwood from a Tennessee Lake. The hide is from a Tennessee Whitetail deer. The turkey feathers are from a ceremonial fan made by a Cherokee lady from Tennessee. The rabbit and racoon are molded pieces from my collection. The bear was hand carved by a Cherokee friend from Tennessee. The knife blade is high carbon steel (440c). I made the handle from deer antler, stabilized bone and hand carved leather. The sheath is handmade with a Tennessee Rattlesnake band.
