Does not include a sheath. John Colter was a member of the Lewis & Clark exploratory expedition, and upon its return to the Mandan Villages from the Pacific Coast, Colter left the expedition to join with a band of Mountain Men journeying on a trapping expedition to Yellowstone. The following spring he was traveling down through Missouri when he met Manuel Lisa's up-bound party of trappers. He promptly joined those individuals, and it is during this time with Manual Lisa's party that he explored the vast areas of the Rockies and is credited as being the first white man to see what we now know as Yellowstone Park.
When he related to his associates what he had seen there, he was discredited and labeled as a teller of tall tales. However, he may have also been the first white man to see the Big Horn and the Teton Ranges. The great tar spring at the forks of the Stinking Water River is named "Colter's Hell" for this daring and intrepid man. We gladly name one of our knives for him, keeping the same style as the Jedediah Smith only making it larger overall. 9-1/2" blade, 3/8" stock, 1-1/2 wide, Stag handle, made with 0-1 or D-2 steel, liner in sheath, 6 stars on top of blade.
