Known for their “Sycamore Street” moniker, the shear-steel blades became a recognized presence among frontiersman, who needed rugged, utilitarian blades in their daily lives. “The vast majority of the knives sold through the fur-trade supply houses to the mountain men and Indians in the far west were imported from Sheffield, England. And of those knives, the brand that seems to have been most highly prized was ‘I Wilson.’ they were the cutting tools that actually tamed the western wilderness.“The demand for Wilson knives did not go away with the beaver trade, as many of the same frontiersmen moved on to hunting buffalo for their robes. Included is this leather sheath with old glass striped pony beads an dew claws.
