This is a knife to get excited about. It isn't super-old, doesn't date back to the late 1700's or early 1800's but neither is it one of those TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE reproductions that come from India and Pakistan, which you find selling for several hundred dollars by unscrupilous sellers here on ebay. It was more likely made sometime in the late 19th or early 20th century, made EXPERTLY in the style of the old beavertail dague knives that embody the fur trapper era in history. I don't know who made it and that's a shame becuase they did a hell of a job, as you can clearly see in the photos, and they should take a bow. We bought it as part of a larger collection that came from northern Quebec, so it may have been made somewhere in that region, but who made it is secondary, I think, to how well they made it. We think so highly of this knife that we're willing to offer this extraordinary warranty: if you're anything less than thrilled with it we'll refund your purchase price AND the cost of sending it back (USA buyers only). Anyone else on ebay standing behind their knives that way? We didn't think so.

Blade is thick, sturdy, hand-forged carbon steel hafted over classic beavertail handles that appear to be cherry or perhaps some kind of walnut, pinned in a classic 5-pin pattern using steel pins over a full tang. Blade is double-edged and RAZOR sharp. This is no mere poser and anyone in need of a super-effective belt knife would be thrilled by the solid quality and performance this knife can offer in spades. Anyone involved in black-powder rendezvous or living history re-enactment should put this at the very top of their list when it comes to accessories, or, if you're looking for trade bait for your trade blanket, I assure you this will be the most tempting piece of cheese you can offer.  Seriously, you could legitimately ask for a good rifle in exchange for this knife. I think you'll find it difficult to part with, however. Equal in quality to the knife itself is the very fine sheath in which we found it. Not only is it made of superior cowhide but it appears to have been stitched in some kind of natural material that would be authentic to the period. Again, I really don't think this is OF the period of the fur trade but it certainly is authentic to it, down to the very last detail.

It measures 10.75" long with 6-3/8" blade but by any measure this is an instant heirloom that any user or collector should be thrilled to use, display and pass along to their progeny.

Terms of Sale

By bidding or buying, you certify that you are above 18 years of age and that you have read and agree to all terms of sale as detailed below. If you have any questions, please email prior to bidding or buying.

Our store's inventory is searchable using the search field or may be browsed by clicking on categories, with each option found on the left side of the store's homepage. See some of the finest knives and other related goodies on ebay! Don't see it or can't find what you're looking for? Just email--we have THOUSANDS of knives but not enough time to post them all, so we may have what you need and we always take requests very seriously.

All images and descriptions are copyrighted, and we aggressively pursue legal remedy as well as ebay's rules against plagiarizing them. It's wrong--it's STEALING--and you WILL be turned in to us by one of the legion of our loyal customers, who inevitably see your plagiarism and notify us about it. All items come from a smoke-free home with no pets unless otherwise indicated.

RETURN POLICY: You may return this item for any reason. Your intention to return MUST be emailed to us within 72 hours of receipt of your item and item MUST be received within 14 days, as determined by Delivery Confirmation delivery time posted on the USPS website. All returned items must be in the same, saleable and unused condition as when shipped, with all original packaging and/or with all tags attached where applicable. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS to this policy--sorry, but we've already been victimized by abusers of this system and of our trust. Buyer is responsible for shipping.

SHIPPING: NO ONE likes the cost of shipping. We do whatever we can to minimize your shipping costs on multiple purchases, and in most cases, combining multiple wins will save BIG, often shipping two or more items for the cost of one. In order to streamline the process, we will provide a flat, upfront shipping rate in our auctions whenever possible for all U.S. buyers. IN MOST CASES ACTUAL SHIPPING WILL BE LOWER THAN WHAT WE CHARGE; this is the way we pay our teenage neighbor to pack and ship our ebay items (he keeps the difference). If you dislike this or find this unfair, PLEASE shop elsewhere; we only want happy customers and it's our feeling that no one should be able to claim dissatisfaction with this policy, since we're stating it up front. It's not an attempt to profit, simply the only way my elderly bones can continue to offer so many items. Please keep in mind, too, that our prices for shipping in USA always INCLUDE insurance AND Delivery Confirmation unless otherwise stated (sorry, no exceptions to this.). WE SELF-INSURE using our business policy. Items lost or damaged in transit require buyer to file an affidavit for our insurance policy via a claim form similar to the U.S. Post Office or UPS insurance claim forms. I will gladly send you the forms necessary to file. We usually ship on Wednesdays and Saturdays, but sometimes our teenage packaging guy may have an exam, or he gets to the P.O. late, so again, we ask you in advance to please forgive our humanity. Usually, we sell knives, not human organs for transplantation, so time really shouldn't be too critical, but if you have special needs, please email us prior to bidding. We take customer service very seriously and want to do whatever it takes to meet your needs. If you're not in total agreement with us here or disagree for any reason, we can only urge that you PLEASE shop elsewhere.

INTERNATIONAL: WE'VE CHANGED OUR POLICY for INT'L. SHIPPING! Please read ALL terms and ASK if you're not sure. Terms are NON-NEGOTABLE. Int'l shipping rates posted in our ads include a minimum $5.00 handling (sorry, even Canada, due to tedious Customs forms and Post Office procedures) to cost of actual shipping, with acceptable payment on international transactions in the form of paypal only. If you can only pay via some other method, email us prior to bidding. International packages will be calculated on the basis of a MINIMUM ONE POUND weight. International packages cannot be insured and we cannot be held responsible for packages lost or damaged in transit (we pack very well, but shipping overseas is strictly at buyer's risk). Want tracking? You will have to pay an additional $12 for Registered Mail or you may upgrade to the much more expensive option of Express Mail International. IMPORTANT: After TWELVE YEARS of doing everything we could to hold the line on int'l. shipping costs, we have taken our LAST loss, so we've been forced to implement a new policy in which Shipping costs on ANY international parcel sold for over $75 will now include a required $12 Registered Mail fee in order to make your purchase trackable. This is 100% non-negotiable. The cost will be factored into the posted shipping costs of any item that STARTS at $75 or more, but if you purchase several items, the charge will have to be added at the end. Again, this is NON-NEGOTIABLE.

We have NO control of your parcel once it has been shipped, and in our Post-9/11 world, your own nation's Customs may cause lengthy delays in delivery time. There is NOTHING we can do to circumvent your country's Customs policies and laws and we will not be held responsible for any problems caused you by Customs. If you're not in total agreement with us here or disagree for any reason, again, we can only urge you to PLEASE shop elsewhere.

LOCAL: We aren't set up to conduct local pickup of ebay merchandise, so if you're in the Los Angeles area, please factor the cost of shipping into your bid/buy strategy.

REGARDING FEEDBACK:We prefer that you leave us none at all and join us in boycotting this sham. Why? We'd love to tell you but now ebay doesn't even allow us to discuss this in our ads! What're they afraid of--the world actually knowing how their greed is manifest? Please don't misunderstand; we're all for making a buck but CENSORSHIP? That has GOT to go! We'll be happy to tell you what we really think but dare not do so over the (easily monitored) intra-net the company runs. Send us your email address and we'll be happy to fill you in.

PAYMENT: Payment must be received within ten (10) days of auction's close. We reserve the right to relist any item for which payment has not been received in 10 days. Visa / Mastercard/American Express/Discover gladly accepted via www.paypal.com, the only method of payment we may accept. If you can only pay via some other method, you MUST email us PRIOR to bidding/buying.

ATTENTION HOTMAIL USERS!!! (and other web-based email users!) We FREQUENTLY have problems contacting buyers who use a hotmail email address, since the company recently shrunk the size of your allowable storage. Other web-based companies often filter our attempts to contact you with a spam filter. It is YOUR responsibility to maintain an address that is reachable at all times. If your email comes back to us 3 times, we will report the problem to ebay via a non-paying bidder alert.



REGARDING BEST OFFERS...
