Flint knapped obsidian blade knives with ebony wood handles

The buyer of these two knives wanted a "black on black" appearance. Rather than stain antlers as dark as possible for handles, I bought two chunks of ebony - the darkest wood on the planet. He also wanted the "darkest and sharpest" flint knapped obsidian blades. Ron Saunders of Nampa, Idaho, a Native American of Cherokee descent, provided them. Personally, I rate him as one of the best at his craft in the country. A friend reminded me to use black sinew to complete the look. Each knife is 10 3/4-inches long. The blades measure 5 1/2-inche long and 1 1/2 inches at their widest point.

Those are absolutely gorgeous. A flint knife is on my wish list.

An Obsidian was on a couple of our wishlists, which is why one of those is coming to me and one is going to my cutting partner in crime. :D

The prices are great, the knives look fantastic and I am most happy with Randy joining our forum and sharing his talent with us.

I hope you include a signed certificate with it...provenance might not count for too much right now but a few generations from now it sure will.
