This Western Knife with it’s New Sheath is Vintage Bushcraft Gear, Camping Equipment, or an Unexpected 3rd Anniversary Gift for Him.
When a knife comes into the collection with an original sheath it stays with that blade whenever possible. However, when the “original” is gone we create one that will compliment the blade. The new timberwolf sheath is a “hooded” style that covers the hilt of the knife completely. The snakeskin accent and “caspian” shield add a classic look to the frontier sinew hand stitching on this classy belt carry. This l66 “d” western company hunting knife was manufactured in 1980. By that time the camillus knife company had taken over production of the boulder, colorado knife company and had implemented the “lettering” system for dating production of each of their knives.
