Date Created: 15 August 2008

These knives were made by Khauvkei the man shown in this photograph. Who lived in Ulgii, the capitol of Bayan Ulgii in western Mongolia. I purchsed one of his last knives in 2001, the sheath is made from wood and is contoured inside to the shape of the blade, which is of carbon steel and keeps a fine edge. The handle of the knife is horn and often from the Ibex. For more information visit: www.eaglefalconer.com
