as a kind of human hair cosplay wig for black women, it is more light, soft and delicate and looks more transparent than normal lace, which can melt into our skin more perfectly, which makes the hairline more invisible and undetectable.

Personal Patch Knife created by artist Tom Lucas and Bear Paradox Compound Bow

Personal Patch Knife created by artist Tom Lucas

In the early 1800’s, mountain men carried both a large “Bowie type” knife and a small personal knife. The small knife was referred to as a patch knife or neck knife. This personal knife was used for everything from cutting a patch of cloth to seat a bullet in a man’s Hawken rifle (hence patch knife) and also used for making supper. It was worn around the neck or attached to the shoulder therefore easy to reach.

Tom Lucas, master craftsman and award-winning artist, recreated historically authentic replica knife with beaded sheath. The knife blade is 3.75 inches long and ½ inch wide, made from sharp Solingen German steel. The handle is 3.25 inches long.  A copper band joins the blade and handle.  The Bighorn Sheep horn handle features a carved hawk’s head.

The knife sheath is a beaded Shoshone design featuring blue, red and white beads with beaded tassels.  The knife and sheath are made to be worn around the neck and the sheath has a 15-inch buckskin leather strap. This is a true Tom Lucas masterpiece, authentic design and precision craftsmanship.
