Argentine Gaucho Silver Boot Knife

Regular price $650.00

In Argentine folklore, mythology, song and and literature the knife is a potent symbol, and a knife fight the stuff of legend as much as the Old West gun-fight is in the US. Here we have exactly the right weapon for a chance at immortality, beautifully decorated as befits its magical power.

More usually, but no less romantically the gaucho uses his knife for everything. Skinning, eating, cutting brush… The knife is also a way of life.
