Knife and sheath weighs about 2 lbs. The blade is steel, about 6 1/2" long, very sharp and rusted. The total length with the sheath is about 12". It has an old, musky smell to it, like it had been stored in grandmothers attic for 50 years. This leads me to believe it may be antique. The handle appears to be elk antler. The Case is wood and it appears to be 2 pieces (a top and bottom half). It was then covered with what appears to be elk fur and wrapped with what appears to be sinew. The beads vary in shape and size, leading me to believe they may be hand made. And at the end, are what appears to be either pieces of bone or teeth. The exposed wood has been painted with an intricate design. The only indication of a makers mark is "B" stamped on the pommel. The knife itself feels heavy and solid...Their does not seem to be any gap between the handle and steel. The knife feels well made.
