The Paul Dyck Plains Indian Buffalo Culture Collection, acquired through the generosity of the Dyck family and additional gifts of the Nielson Family and the Estate of Margaret S. Coe
Carved antler handle, with three (3) rings, then two (2) rings carved near top of handle. A hole is drilled through the top portion for the leather hand strap. From second ring down 8" a zig-zag design is scratched into the surface on the top (narrow portion) of antler, leading to very small nail and 7 brass tacks nailed into the side. Bottom has two (2) rings carved around, and the very bottom edge has small box 'teeth' carved. The other narrow side has 3 or more metal pieces, and 1 brass tack hammered into the antler, with red pigment around it, and 1 ½" carved zig-zag then 6 brass tacks. The two wider, flatter sides of the antler have 2 ¾" L hourglass shapes carved into the bottom portion of the handle, with vertical lines covering the length of the hourglass. The bottom of the handle has been carved out and a doubled up leather strap was nailed in. The top portion of the leather strap is wrapped in red wool cloth, and the top of that is then wrapped in thick sinew-like material. Currently, and modernly, "fixed" with a piece of plastic-like thread to hold handle to strap - taking to Conservation for evaluation.
