Miscellaneous, Knife, Beaded Sheath, Obsidian Stone Blade, Dave Chavarria, Artisan, 225
NOT ONLY LOOKS SHARP, IS SHARP!
Created by one of our beloved collaborators, Santa Clara artisan Dave Chavarria, this intricate and unique piece is a handcrafted sheath made using brain-tanned leather embellished with vibrant seed beads in geometric patterns and adorned with dangling tin cones. The sheath houses a gorgeous knife, also handcrafted, with an obsidian stone blade and an antler handle. It has a long leather strap that can be worn looped around a belt or long as a necklace. A beautiful piece that would make an excellent, thoughtful gift!
