Black and Silver Sheen Obsidian Curved Blade Knife with Arrow Carved Handle

The handsomely curved blade of this knife is carved from black and silver sheen obsidian. The flint knapping technique used by Myron Nix allows brilliant hues of black and silver to radiate throughout the blade. The knife handle is created from natural elk antler. The handle of the knife is accented with a carved wooden tip and braided leather strap along with an arrow carved into the antler. Eye-catching with expert craftsmanship and fine detailing.

Flint knapping, often referred to as a lost art, is a method of using stone to chip away at chunks of obsidian to handcraft arrowheads, spearheads, tomahawk blades, and other tools. Some of the finest examples of tools and weapons were created by Native Americans using the flint knapping technique.

Myron Nix creates artistic masterpieces which are one-of-a-kind. He has a reputation for attention to fine detail, his expert knapping technique, and his creative approach. Myron makes a wide variety of knives, peace pipes, tomahawks, arrows, quivers, and spears.

Obsidian is the rock formed as a result of quickly cooled lava, which is the parent material. Extrusive formation of obsidian may occur when felsic lava cools rapidly at the edges of a felsic lava flow or volcanic dome or when lava cools during sudden contact with water or air. Intrusive formation of obsidian may occur when felsic lava cools along the edges of a dike.

Obsidian is mineral-like, but is is not a true mineral because is is not crystalline and its composition is too variable to be classified as a mineral. Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock.
