Suzanne’s Blade

Oh she’s indeed a hummer. 20” from tip to tip, 5” wide. Made by hand, the sheath body is Elk rawhide, wool trade cloth with glass seed bead embroidery. Upper wrap is hair on cowhide with bead embroidery. Traditional work is very satisfying to me. Love the whole of it. Smells of the materials, solving the puzzle of how to blend and balance the desire for the piece to the end place of a useful and active tool. Beautiful as well as handy and handmade, unique to the blade it carries.IMG_2353
