Each Frontier Collection Howling Wolf lockback knife has been handcrafted with scrupulous details offering authentic Southwestern accents. Elegant hardwood and turquoise handle scales are accented by polished brass inlays, bolsters and howling wolf shield. Intricately file-worked details have been added by crafted artisans to reflect the decor of the frontier period of the Old West. The 3-1/2-Inch AUS-8 stainless steel blade has been honed to a razor's edge and then individually laser-serialized using advanced blade etching techniques. Each knife is built with quality and craftsmanship by United Cutlery, so it is not only a cutlery tool - but also a collectible.
