Everyone ever afflicted with gold fever always went seeking riches accompanied by the most indespensable tool of life in the wilderness - a good knife. This knife is a tribute to those who lived the great gold rushes of the past two centuries. The blade is knapped of a precious form of obsidian, Gold Sheen. It was mined in Mexico. The handle is a choice whitetail antler with density and lines worthy of the blade. Together they become a huge nugget of beauty, measuring over 12 inches in length. It comes with a clear, acrylic knife stand for display.
