Knives of Flint Primitive knives for modern hunters


Flint knife blades are the best edge in the world for field dressing game outperforming any known steel!

CHRISTMAS STOCK
of immediately available display knives


To purchase my primary production skinner-type knives you will
need to request availibility via email to make an order.


Sometimes I get a bit artsy and make knives for the shear beauty of it.  These are a few items that do not exactly fit my normal skinner knife production but they will make great gifts this Christmas season.  Once they are sold they will be removed.  I plan to have something posted all the time, so keep watching. 


_____________________________________________
SPECIAL #001: Big Old Blade
Made from Oklahoma keokuk and with an applied patina to make it look old.  This blade is very thin and very sharp.  It will be a great center for a wall frame display.  9.5" long.  $150

SPECIAL #003: Opal Glass Display Knife
Styled like my skinners, but is much too delicate for field use, this striking knife will grace any place you put it for display.  With a blade length of 4" the total knife length is 8".  Black sinew/epoxy on mule deer antler.  It will not include a sheath (it could if you want one) but will come with a small antler display stand. $120

SPECIAL #004: Keokuk Dagger Display Knife
Due to its length this knife is not suited for skinning game but it will make a great display knife or centerpiece. Keokuk flint from Oklahoma is a beautiful alabaster cream color (sorry the photo does it little justice).  The blade length is 6.25" and the total knife length is 11".  Brown sinew/epoxy on axis deer antler. It will not include a sheath but will come with a small antler display stand. I could custom make a sheath for it if you desire.  It would be impressive at mountain man or Indian events (illegal to carry otherwise).  $140

             I MAKE AND SELL FLINT SKINNING KNIVES
                                FOR GAME OF ANY SIZE.


SUPERIOR TO STEEL IN SHARPNESS, PERFORMANCE, KEEPING AN EDGE, AND LESS PRONE TO CUTTING HOLES IN A HIDE.


My hand-crafted knives and sheaths are designed for both the collector and for using in the field.  Enjoy what hunters are re-discovering:  Flint knives are very effective, and in some ways superior to steel.  Sharper and holding an edge longer are important, but they also possess something else above steel blades... a connection with the past.  My flint knives are very popular with deer hunters who not only want a better knife but also want to bring something different and impressive to the camp. A flint knife is a great gift for the hunter who THOUGHT he had everything.  All of the knives on this website are for those desiring a better knife for field dressing large and small game.  Flint offers more than steel blades with its superior edge for hide removal. Great for any animal... including feral hogs!  Why use a knife that's less sharp and gets dull often?  Of the hunters I know that use flint knives, none have gone back to using steel.     

Flint knives are AMAZINGLY BETTER THAN STEEL in many ways:

Sharper than steel and absolutely NO resharpening when used to skin any animal... including hogs!
Why use a knife that is less sharp and has to be frequently resharpened?  Animal hides "melt off like butter" because of the extremely sharp and serrated edge.  If used properly it will NEVER get dull!  Yes, it can get dull when used on something other than hide or soft tissue, but it CAN be easily resharpened (I suggest sending it to me for FREE expert re-sharpening).  And yes, it can break and must be treated with care when handling.  Consider it's properties much like that of a modern ceramic knife except that my knives are more durable and they have a serrarted edge ideally suited for skinning.
  The serrated edge also prevents accidentally cutting holes in your cape.  Overall unparralled performance compared to steel.

KNIFE AND SHEATH CONSTRUCTION:

My knives are uniquely designed with the hunter in mind. You won't find my basic skinner blade design in flint anywhere else.  It was developed from the suggestions of hunters desiring a functional field blade.  The cutting edge has a generous radius and most have a thumb-rest on the backside near the handle.  Each blade is durable and sharp with waterproof haftings (two-part epoxy and artificial sinew).  Handles are real mule deer antlers, selected for their straightness and the best grip when wet.  Each knife has a custom fitted SHEATH which is also of a unique construction.  They are made from a single continouous piece of leather with NO stiching.  Easy to clean by simply unfolding it and rinsing with water.  My sheaths are based on the "Mexican holster" design.  My designs incorporate simplicity, functionality, and have a rugged appeal. 

CONCERNED ABOUT RESHARPENING?

I will resharpen any dulled blade for free as many times as it needs it... forever.  The same applies for damaged, yet
repairable blades.  Only include the return shipping costs when you send the knife.

     A little about the artist:

Stacy Reeves, a Native Texan living in Spring (just north of Houston).  With a love for arrowheads and a keen interest to learn anything about our native American heritage I began flintknapping in 2001.  Although I do have 1/16th Cherokee, I consider myself just a regular white guy who loves flintknapping.  I use both traditional (percussion) and flake-over-grinding methods.  I believe in practicality and simplicity as seen in my knife and sheath construction.  Much of my work is made with highly prized Texas flints including Pedernales and Georgetown flints.  I also use glass, obsidians, agates, and just about anything that fractures colloidally.

God bless!
