Nashwaak Knife | Kings County Forge River Series



Nashwaak Knife

The Nashwaak River, located in west-central New Brunswick, Canada, is a tributary of the Saint John River. It is 113 kilometres long.
The river’s name comes from the Maliseet language, a corruption of the word for slow current. It was used heavily by the Maliseet people as a transportation route to northwestern New Brunswick. A French fort, Fort Nashwaak, was built at the river’s mouth in 1692 and was the first European settlement in the Fredericton area.

The handle is made of bone and stacked birch bark finished off with a piece of curly birch, we really like working with the birch and it is very abundant in our area.

This dandy little knife is ready for adventure, hunting or fishing!

Not too big and not too small, great handle size and grip, makes for secure handling while doing your knifework.
The sheath or the Nashwaak is unique in that is can be worn horizontally on your belt of on a shoulder strap.

Select your sheath colour from the drop down menu and select the side your would prefer to wear your knife on.
