Now, James Beckwourth was a fascinating figure in American history. He was born into slavery in Virginia in 1798, but he eventually escaped slavery and made his way west. He lived among several Native American tribes and became a skilled trader, interpreter, and guide. He was also one of the few African Americans to have played a major role in the western expansion of the United States.

Beckwourth was known for his bravery, resourcefulness, and knowledge of the land. He was a true pioneer, and his contributions to the westward expansion of the United States are immeasurable.

Care Instructions

Don’t throw, pound, pry or chop with a knife. It’s not safe and if you damage the knife using it that way, it may void the warranty. Strong impact or twisting can also damage your knife or worse, cause an injury. If you have a locking blade, always check that the locking mechanism is in working order before you use it.

Store your knife in a dry place, out of the sheath. Lightly wipe the blade with clean oil two to three times a year to keep rust from starting. You may need to oil more often if you live near water.  Cleaning and caring for your knife will maintain performance and enhance the life your knife.

If you find the metal has a blue, grey or black color, it is a sign of oxidation and a precursor of rust.  Stainless steel does not discolor easily. If you do notice a change in the color of the metal, clean it immediately. It’s a sign of rust waiting to happen. 

 Discoloration is common to non-stainless steel. But regular cleaning will keep the metal from rusting.
