    I am trying to get hold of the exact details concerning this weapon like handle material used etc
    Looking at REPLICA'S made from other makers there is always certain criteria not met like exact size handle made, wrong ridge cut, ivory/bone not used etc
    Reading past material from this site from way back when there seems to be some suggestion that there was a reproduction made from H.I. too but cannot find any links, images or anything on the site.
    Am I wrong and as it been discontinued or can this still be a custom/requested purchase.
    Any help in this matter would be gratefully appreciated
    Cheers
    Steve

    Steve, it appears this is not jogging anyone’s memory. Can you link to the old reference you found? That may help.

    There is an old painting about halfway down this FAQ page.

    It was from reading a post from about 20yrs ago from bill Martino if I recall correctly where I got the impression HI made these.
    This was regarding the displayed knife on the left in the exhibit at the national museum which is the usual one reproduced (white handle) but is not a needed requirement here now.
    Thanks for the concern anyhow.
