Last year I had an opportunity to do some trading with Craig Johnson of Arms & Armor. I got this sweet 14th century styled hunting knife based on the knives features in Livre de chasse (Book of the Hunt) commissioned by Gaston Phoebus, 11th count of Foix. It has a leather scabbard decoration appropriate for the era and depicting a hunting motif.

Being a minimalist-at-heart when it comes to 'using knives', I must say there's nothing about that knife that I don't just love. I wouldn't hesitate to use it as a hunting/skinning knife. The blade looks to be just the right size and have just enough 'belly' to it for nice sweeping slices while skinning. 100% function...that's what I'm talkin' about. Wink Let that blade darken though! It would only make it look that much more authentic, imho. Wink The scabbard is spot-on perfect. Love it! Big Grin ....McM

I like it, too. It's like a tiny falchion!

I love it all-around, but the decoration and suspension ring really catch my attention!

Just a really nice piece all round and I love the blade shape and the scabbard has such an earthy period feel - great stuff.

Nice! Like the granddaddy of the bullnose butcher knife! These things actually show up in the fechtbucher occasionally.

Very sweet piece. Every well rounded collection should have such an item.

That knife and sheath have been growing on me all week. Every time I look at it, I am more impressed! Enjoy this lovely piece.

Wonderful work. I actually have the dagger's twin, or else little brother. I forget. This sheath is really well done. There is a difference between the finish of dagger and sheath, but it isn't aggravating by any means.

That's absolutely lovely. It appears generously seasoned with awesome sauce. It's a feast for my eyes..Nom, nom, nom!
(Maybe I should go eat something).
