AFRICAN WATTLE BURL "LION" KNIFE

PRICE:  R3 800

120 mm long blade of hand forged and differentially tempered 5160 carbon steel.  Tapered full tang construction.  Handle of African Wattle Burl wood (Peltophorum Africanum) with fiber liners and brass pins.  Brown cowhide sheath with embossed border.

This type of knife was used by the Kruger National Park's first game ranger, Harry Wolhuter, to kill a lion that attacked him while on patrol in the park in 1903.  He climbed a Mopane tree to get away from the second lion.  His memoirs can be read in his autobiography, "Memories of a Game Ranger".  His parents are buried in the cemetery in our hometown of Belfast, Mpumalanga.
