Superior product of a New England cottage industry produced for the Western Expansion after the Civil War much of which was sold at St. Louis, the last developed city east of the frontier. 7 1/2" carbon steel blade with slightly upturned tip, characteristic of the Green River skinners, but longer. Wood grips with slightly flared butt secured by brass lined steel rivets. The flared butt is an effort to understand ergonomics at the time, providing a better seat for the hand as it scraped skin from flesh for 12 or more hour a day. The brass rivet liner are a luxury feature protecting the iron rivets form rust produced by contact with the wood grips. Remnants of varnish on the grips attest to the quality of this skinner which was intended to best the competition for quality and function.
