Name: Black Hmong Knife
This is a lightly used knife with a full tang, a wooden handle with brass rings, and a custom made light-weight wooden sheath strapped together with bark strips and with a slit for the hemp rope. The blade is 11.5 inches long, and 2.12 inches at the widest. Every man in this province, and many women, carry a knife strapped around their waist for use while working in the fields, forest, and home. Comes with a photo of the from whom it was purchased. He watched me buy new knives from a woman in front of him, and the offered to sell me his knife. He may have been the man who forged the knife, I don't know.
