Novaculite Neck Knife/Sheath

I’ve been putting together some knives and made this 6-inch white/black novaculite knife, and buckskin neck sheath.  Novaculite comes in a variety of colors but I especially like the black and black/white combination.  This unique rock is only found in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas and Oklahoma.  Native Americans used this resource to make tools to chop, drill, scrape, and cut for every day survival.  Later, settlers in the area used novaculite for whetstones.
