interesting if such a knife were authentic for the SCA's period.

Weren't you trying to show us the ebay listing on this knife in April?
And if the knife on ebay truly was 'one of a kind,' is there a reason
you're putting it in the files, if you've already sold the knife to
There is a medieval knife that has a handle carved into an archer,
maybe that would be a more authentic choice for someone to make or sell?
I will admit I'm not an expert on knives, but the sheath also may not
be the most accurate choice, as the only metal sheath-decoration I can
think of off the top of my head is the bronze fittings from Viking-age
Northern Europe. This 16th century sheath is made of wood with a metal
ring around the mouth, but I'm having difficulty finding one decorated
with a metal tip, such as the photo you uploaded.
There are more accurate designs that could be used to create a
medieval knife sheath that would appeal to archers, than the example
you have given. I hope the above links are inspirational.
