Little Saddlehorn

The little saddlehorn pocket knife is very similar in size and design to the small saddlehorn knife. A saddlehorn knife also known as a “saddlehorn trapper pocket knife” or “old fashion (traditional) saddlehorn knife” is a two bladed pocket knife. The blade configuration is as follows: the largest blade on the Saddlehorn is the clip blade and directly behind the clip blade is either a wide design spey blade or a skinner blade. Both of the blades are slip-joint non locking blades (the backspring of the knife creates a “snap” that keeps the blade from closing). Their bolsters can be squared or rounded and can be single or double, depending on the exact model. This knife is a very practical 3 3/8″ in closed length.

The term “saddlehorn” comes from the design of the handle – it is shaped like a saddle if viewed from the side. It has a rounded end (opposite the blades), which then “rides” down into a smaller end following a curved path. The knife is very easy to wield in the hand; it is a very pragmatic design.
