Note on the Nessmuk blade:
George Washington Sears (1821-1890), under the pen name of “Nessmuk,” wrote many letters and articles for Forest and Stream Magazine (Now Field & Stream) in the 1880s. His articles popularized canoeing, the Adirondack lakes, self-guided canoe camping tours, the open, ultra-light single canoe, and what many today call environmentalism. Sears designed the Nessmuk blade to be an all around useful tool on his adventures. While obscure, the knife design remains popular with those who’ve used them.
