Sold Knives
  All knives here are knapped by Michael McGrath and assembled by him with real
deer sinew, hide glue, and his own special recipe for pine pitch glue.  If you are looking
for an accurate replica of what was likely used by the Indians of old, than you need not
look any further than this page.  There are a lot of knives out there for sale, and 90%
of them are knapped from obsidian slabs fixed in stone or antler handles with modern
epoxy glue.  Many of these knives are for art shops, gun shows, and high end
collectors.  Those who knap slabs have mastered a special art, but Mike's blades are all
knapped by percussion just like the ancient ones were.  He tries to keep to authenticity
more than grand showmanship, but if you desire a flashy modern looking blade &
handle I'm sure he can do that too.  His knives are priced to sell and intended for
display purposes only.  If you would like a knife made for hunting uses, please contact
Mike so that he can make it to fit your durability and sharpness needs.  Mike and
Susquehanna Woodland Designs are not responsible for misuse of knives you purchase
or injuries from normal use, and by purchasing the knife you agree to this.

This is an excellent
display piece for the
hunter or artifact
collector.  The 2 3/4
inch blade is made
out of Texas tabular
chert in the style of
the authentic Calf
Creek & Andice
points.  I've also
applied a patina to
antique the blade for
an authentic look.
These types of deep
knotched blades are
hard to do.  The blade
is mounted on a
White-tailed deer
anter handle with
hide glue, pine pitch
glue, and deer sinew.  
Don't let this bargain
slip by.

Hopewell Knife
This knife was
affectionately dubbed
the "Batman" knife as
the blade looks like
something Batman
would choose to have.  
Seriously, this is a
super thin blade made
from premium black
Novaculite and
measures just shy of 3
inches long, is just shy
of 2 1/4 inches wide,
while maintaining a
thickness of only 1/4 of
an inch.  The blade is
mounted into a Black
Walnut handle with
hide glue, pine pitch
glue, and deer sinew -
super grain on the
handle!!!

Here's a nice Dovetail point made out of Mook Jasper from
Australia that's hafted into a deer antler handle with pine
pitch glue, hide glue, and real deer sinew.  The color in the
blade is super with purples, yellows, and reds.  This one nice
looking knife.

Big Sandy Knife
Here's a beautiful deer antler handled knife that measures 7
1/2 inches long.  The point is made from a Fort Payne variety
chert & is flawless.  The blade was secured in the antler
handle with my own pine pitch glue, hide glue, and deer
sinew.  This is a great knife.

Susquehanna Spoke Shave
Spoke Shaves, as artifacts, are still a bit of a mystery to
archaeologists and collectors alike.  Some believe they were
used to harvest plant material while others believe they were
used to scrape dart & arrow shafts.  Either way, here's a rare
replica with a maple handle that holds an Onondaga chert
Susquehanna point that was made into a spoke shave.  The
bindings are my own pine pitch glue, and Dog Bane collected
from Cortland County, New York.  A great study piece.

Here's a well made deer antler handled knife that measures
over8 1/2 inches long.  The point is made from high grade
Flint Ridge chert & is flawless.  The blade was secured in the
antler handle with my own pine pitch glue, hide glue, and deer
sinew.  This is a great knife that was sold at the
Letchworth
Stone Tool Show in 2008.

This knife represents the average knife I make for sale.  The
blade is an Otter Creek point made from Onondaga Chert.  
The handle is a deer antler and the hafting is my own pine
pitch and deer sinew.  A beauty and this blade was sharp.  I
wouldn't hesitate to use this one to skin deer with or for
hunting purposes or it could be a display piece as well.  I sold
this knife at the
Letchworth Stone Tool Fair in 2008.
