Okay, got me looking for the original Nessmuk knife.
Interesting history.

George Washington Sears (December 2, 1821 – May 1, 1890) was a sportswriter for Forest and Stream magazine in the 1880s and an early conservationist.
Sears was born in Oxford Plains, Mass., Dec. 2, 1821, the oldest of 10 children.
A young Narragansett Indian named Nessmuk (meaning “wood drake”) befriended him and taught him hunting, fishing, and camping. Later he took that name as his pen name.
Nessmuk favored a “trinity” system of cutting tools, his little double bit hatchet of his own design, a light fixed blade and a substantial Moose pattern folder.
Nessmuk’s views towards knives are arch-typical of the classic outdoorsmen; he preferred thin knives, keen edges, and a useable length.
The Nessmuk knife has recently regained popularity as a great little knife.
Its ergonomic shape and deep belly make it a great slicer and many prefer it for food preparation.




Hatchet and Knives preferred by Nessmuk

Thanks David for the research and to all!

James Behring has made some of the most extraordinary knives in my collection. I wanted a larger style Nessmuk, I like big knives LOL. These two knives go to Mudbone Jones for sheaths next; can't wait to see what he does! Pic's will follow when I get them in hand.
