The Metis trade knife is an American-made bushcraft knife constructed from 1095 high carbon steel. The Metis trade knife features a substantial drop-point profile and a good deep belly for skinning and butchering. This would also be an excellent all-around utility knife, especially for practicing bushcraft. It's a solid, stout go-to choice for your everyday needs. From batoning to creating fire bundles, the Metis is an excellent choice for a bushcraft knife.
Their handles are made of maple and attached to the full-tang blade using six brass pins. This design is rugged, comfortable, and gives an antiquated look for those desiring something a little older in style.
Each knife comes with a welted, heavy leather sheath.
