Interesting that you should pick out that one, actually it is one of my favorites. I purchased it from a gentleman who was over there in the 50's. He said it was old when he got it, so I'm not sure exactly when it was made.
It was presented to him, by one of the town folk, for "services rendered". The blade is made out of a old truck leaf spring. Forged, shaped, and sharpened. you would not be able to tell what it was made from. The scabbard is hand-carved of course.
