Anyone Familiar With Kanati Knives?

Post by Paladin » Sun Nov 28, 2021 3:39 am

I got a few of these knives in a recent collection I acquired. The seller referred to them as Kanati knives. There were other knives in the batch I was interested in so I did not pay a lot of attention to these. They are not marked in any way. Some of the sheaths are marked like the one in the photo below.
In checking my usual reference books I find nothing except that Kanati refers to a god of the hunt in Native American culture.
As always, any info will be a appreciated.

Thanks, Madmarco. It is not a bad knife at all. The micarta handle is larger than I would prefer but for a guy with big hands, it would be ideal.

Upon a closer look at your last picture I see the steer skull and feathers hanging from the horns which is a strong indication there is a Native American connection. The name "Kanati" sounds native to me as well. I'm a big micarta fan, and the blade looks very intimidating, my kindda knife! 8)
