This fine piece features wagon themed historical material. The blade is wrought iron wagon wheel and 1084 san mai. The wrought is from my grandmother's grandfather's wagon out of Spicewood, Tx. The guard is wagon wheel from Vega, TX. The spacer is an 1836 half dollar, to commemorate Texas Independence and the pioneer spirit of the western travelers. The handle is ash wood from a Springfield Wagon Company wagon tongue. Springfield made wagons from 1873 to 1951. The blade is 9.75", and the overall length is 15.75". Flat ground, with the spine at a bit over 1/4" inch thick.

This knife is not just art, it's a piece of high performance cutlery. I used it in a cutting contest to commemorate the opening of the James Black School of Bladesmithing at historic Old Washington, AR. Here's a link to a video of the knife at work cutting a 2x4. After this test, the knife maintained its sharpness through four other cutting tests.


Price on this one is $1500, in a zipper case. We could arrange a sheath or display stand.

—Beautiful flat grind
—Historic materials
—Coop photography
—perfectly designed and executed guard

You have really developed into a talented knife maker. This knife could be worth a lot of money in 10 years. It’s certainly worth what you’re asking for it now.

Thanks for the kind words.

This one's a warm up for a cool knife incorporating San Jacinto materials.

Uh oh........my GGGGUncle Benjamin McCulloch was in charge of one of the Twin Sisters at San Jacinto. Can you PM me and give me some details on the design you are thinking about and materials you have? I could sure be interested.
