The "Horseman"

An older/early knife, this knife pattern was originally designed by input from a busy rancher, who spent a good piece of his day in a saddle. The design is clean and lean, with a fairly straightforward blade and handle shape, and makes for a good all around working and utility knife. The drop point is easy to sheath, the handle can be gripped in a variety of ways. The blade is about four inches so is very practical. One of the nice features suited to horsemen is the sheath which is cross draw style and is usually carried on the left side with the cutting edge up. This is because the rider would not wish to have the cutting edge facing his thigh or expensive saddle should the ride become violent and the knife need to be pulled to sever a line.

This version of the Horseman has a hollow ground 440C high chromium stainless steel blade, hand-engraved nickel silver bolsters, Mahogany Obsidian gemstone handle scales, full filework, fully tapered tang, and a 9-10 oz. leather shoulder, hand-stamped basket weave leather cross draw sheath.
