I agree, all the way around! A tourist knife that will be fun for years to come. Starting conversations and sparking imaginations
That is definitely a Mesoamerican tourist knife, with a mythical jaguar motif. I'm not an expert by any means, but my guess is that it is celebrating the Olmec "were-jaguar", given the man who appears to be wearing the jaguar's skin on the sheath. (Great sheath, by the way -- it's fun! I like the blade shape too, that exaggerated large clip point.) If it's related to the Olmec legend, then it was probably produced in or around the state of Veracruz, Mexico (if you compared Mexico to a bent arm, Veracruz is right about where the bicep meets the elbow).
Anyway, fun knife, definitely a keeper!
The sheath is a solid piece.
I agree Manx but the face is one I am sure we have seen before. Not one of the fury's (no bad teeth LOL)
I almost thought it was one of the Fury knives with the strange femo handles, but this looks more like a South American tourist knife. Never seen a Fury with wood used in the sheath or handle.
