According to the artist; 'This blade is inspired by the mountain people of Banff. The design is based off a Hudson's Bay camp knife that was popular during the early 1800s to 1870s. I can imagine a knife such as this riding on the hip of Bill Peyto, along for one of his adventures. The blade is forged from 200-year-old wagon wheel wrought iron that has been combined with a high carbon steel for a strong cutting edge. The handle has brass bolsters and domed brass pins. The wood is 3600 year old bog oak; both of these materials are lined with a fibreglass product called Glo. The sheath is hand stitched latigo leather, a process that makes it weather resistant. The leather is lined with vegetable tanned leather and accented with Bison.'
