Dexter Russell 4215 “Fish” trade knife

Another favorite that i discovered too late in my life! 5 inches of high carbon steel blade, a very high grind, shaving sharp from the factory, barely over 2mm “thick”, 4 inches of checkered hardwood handle, triple riveted, made by America´s oldest knifemaker. I will have a traditional stick sheath made for it, that´s all it needs. Trappers and outdoorsmen of times gone by have always seemed to prefer cutting efficiency over a thick blade spine. This thing wants to cut! Street prices run around 15 dollars.
