Railroad Spike Knife
- There is a simple truth to Railroad Spike Knives. Although they are certainly usable (each one is "tempered" and sharpened), they are meant to be a collectible knife and they make great conversation pieces. If you are a knife collector and, displayed between two of your most prized knives is my Railroad Spike Knife, a visitor will invariably pick up the latter and say, "Wow, is this really a railroad spike!?".
The process begins with a legally purchased spike that, when heated to a blinding orange color, only the very tip of the spike gets hammered repeatedly, flattened, and drawn out into what eventually becomes the blade of the knife. After forging hundreds of these knives, I decided to source a top quality handmade leather sheath. There is also an option to include a brass 30-30 rifle casing in the handle for decoration.
Personalization: Up to Three (3) initials can be stamped into the head of the spike, at no charge. Simply type the initials in the 'Order Notes' section when you add to cart.
- Dimensions: 8" Overall Length (20cm); 3 1/2" Average Blade Length (9cm)
