This beautiful hunting knife was made by M. W. Seguine, a Juneau professional knife
maker of the '60s and '70s. An article
in the 1971 edition of Gun Digest ranked Mr. Sequine among the 15 top makers of
custom knives, with Randall, Loveless and others of note. The article says of Seguine and his knives
that he "...shows great competence though you will wait 3-4 years to get
one", which suggests that there are not very many Seguine knives in
existence. A knife very similar to the
one in this sale was featured in the Gun Digest article.
The knife is in very
good used condition. It has been carried
and lightly used but never abused. The
knife has a bone handle, a five-inch blade and is 9-1/4 inches long
overall. The blade is keenly
sharpened, has no nicks and has not been ground, filed or otherwise mistreated. M.W. Seguine, Juneau, Alaska is imprinted on both the blade and sheath.
The sheath is made of heavy leather and has a pocket with a
small sharpening stone. There is some
staining on the sheath from the brass guard and rivets.
