In the Middle Ages most of the nobility were devoted hunters. It was a sport that helped train for war as well as providing meat for the table. All of the huntsmen would prepare themselves for the hunt with a trousse. This large knife was used to dispatch the wounded animal, then dress out and carve the carcass. Sometimes the trousse was accompanied by a fork and a small knife for camp dining. Our trousse has a 12" long, 2" wide blade that will take and keep a razor edge. Both it and the small knife are made of high carbon steel, as is the fork. Furniture is steel, while the grip is polished buffalo horn. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Main blade can be sharpened for additional fee.
