Crazy Horse Knife, Model 005
"Tashunka Witko," Oglala Lakota Sioux Warrior. Crazy Horse was born around 1845 on the Republican River that traces the Nebraska-Kansas border. He was raised with tribal traditions of generosity, courage and self-denial. He ordered the attack on Lt. Col. George A. Custer's Seventh Cavalry and never surrendered the lands claimed by his people. When asked where were his lands, he replied, "My lands are where my dead lie buried." The Crazy Horse knife sports a handle made of wood from a grove of aspen trees, which grew on the sacred Pine Ridge Reservation land in southern Nebraska. The Aspen is revered by the Sioux Nation as the "Tree of Life." The 4 1/2" x 1 1/2" blade is made from knapped obsidian, a hard volcanic glass. Its color is variegated rust black and is affixed to the hilt with leather strips. Horsehair tassels dangle from brass cones, threaded with bone beads lashed to the leather binding. Four brass tacks represent the four seasons. The fringed buckskin sheath is brain-tanned, hand-made and beaded with a familiar Sioux pattern. A certificate of authenticity is included. 1,847 knives commemorating the year Crazy Horse was born will be produced.
