The historically-inspired Powder River design has everything that a traditional outdoorsman could require in an all-purpose belt knife, for this knife is built to serve.

  • This model is approximately 8 3/8 inches overall, with its 4-inch blade. It is also available with a 5-inch blade.
  • Made out of O-1 high carbon tool steel, in a 1/8-inch width.
  • The blade has a smooth, sweeping edge that holds a sharpening like only high-carbon steel does. The sharp tip is ready and waiting when you are faced with chores like skinning your catch. An aged blade finish is the standard for the Powder River family, but satin and hammer-forged pattern finishes are both options when customizing this knife.
  • Brass pins complete this look. Or, you can go deluxe and upgrade to 3/16″ mosaic pins!
  • Your handle choice. I recommend native, natural materials such as oak, curly maple, walnut, mesquite, osage orange, or ironwood, because of the nature of this model, but feel free to be creative. The knife above has a classic, elegant walnut handle.
  • Includes a custom-fitted vertical-carry leather belt sheath – handmade right here by Ike! Horizontal sheaths are not available for this model…but better than that and best of all in the sheath options – the Powder River is fully compatible with the Trekker sheath. Please be sure to check out all Trekker’s amazing details over here!
