Aiel belt knife

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a description of an Aiel belt knife.  The only thing I remember from the books is that they are almost long enough to be a short sword.  Anyone remember any specifics as to length, heaviness of blade, type of handle and sheath...

Got some ideas.  But I'm waiting for the lady that's making my bull-hide shield to find a good blank to get started.  She has to wait for a buffalo to die first though...  Once I find out what that is going to cost, then I can get serious about the belt knife.

I don't remember a place where they were specifically described in the book; I'd probably just go off of the art of others and assume that they got their idea from somewhere credible :P Is the place you get them from very close to you?

Most of my weapons are of traditional martial arts design - mostly Japanese.  My Aiel set-up will be made by 3 different artisans I hadn't worked with before.  The spears by a blacksmith in NJ.  The shield by a Plains Indian expert in CO.  And the knife by a master bladesmith in Canada.

 

And as I live near Cleveland, OH - none of them are close to me.
