Fiddleback Forge Lion Killer Knife - Model Info

In 1903, a man named Harry Wolhuter was traveling on a familiar path between watering holes in South Africa. Harry was on horseback with a dog following when he was attached by 2 hungry lions! The story is a pulse pounding tale of the will to survive, while keeping your wits about you in the most dire situation imaginable…to avoid being eaten alive! As the name of the knife may give away, Harry survived the encounter by using his knife to fight back on the lion posing the immediate risk to his life… but the story of what happened from the moment of attack to the end is astonishing. We covered it in one of our YouTube videos. Be sure to watch that.
