The Blue River Knife Series was inspired on the Blue River, a tributary of the Colorado River, inhabited by the Native American “Arapaho” tribe. The knife series honors the warrior-like culture and superb hunting skills of this tribe. The Blue River Knife Series features a handle with an embedded turquoise-pattern reconstituted stone resembling the origins of turquoise jewelry characteristic of the Native Americans, as well as a natural, rustic blade finish that denotes the warfare, survival, and hunting spirit of these ancestral tribes.
The blade is crafted from tempered and tough 1075 high carbon steel. Riveted directly to the thick tang for a robust construction are grip scales of finely polished walnut inset with beautiful bands of reconstituted Turquoise stone. The machete is paired with a sheath of fine handcrafted welted leather with a swivel-mounted belt loop for ready wear.
