Forged Knife with Sheath & Stand by Verlin CosselKatie Horn
Verlin Cossel regularly contributes remarkably unique works of art for the annual auction. This year, Cossel created another showstopper. Forged from 5160 steel, the blade carries decorative deer tracks and was tempered with a rich “Woodbury patina.” The knife’s handle is crafted from whitetail deer antler that exhibits hand carved cross hatching. Cossel’s knife comes with a custom sheath, made from vegetable tanned leather that’s covered with elk rawhide. The knife is also accompanied with a stunning display stand made from a salvaged section of damaged chestnut.
