The Gaucho is the equivalent of the American Cowboy. Often the only tool he had was his knife so it served multiple purposes. He would often eat with his knife, taking a firm grip on a large chunk of beef with his teeth and cutting it loose in front of his lips with a flourish. Not a method we would recommend. This version is made by Boker in Argentina for A. G. Russell™ customers and is based on the traditional punal. The punal is a multi-purpose knife originally carried in a simple leather sheath tucked behind a sash tied around the waist.

This is very traditional in blade shape with integral forged square sided bolster. The handle material is "European" antler from the Red Deer. Antler, horn or wood would have been traditional handle material, depending on what was available. The slim 6" blade is German drop forged C-60 at 55-57Rc. The black leather sheath is made in the Gaucho style: no belt loop, but with a flap or tab to hold the sheath in the belt or sash. Measures 11" overall. Weighs 6.6 oz. Made in Argentina.
