Made in the pattern of the early American rail spike knife so favored by the thousands of men who worked building the transcontinental railroad.
But improved, the heavy base of the spike has been removed and replaced with a thin iron palm plate to reduce overall weight.
The iron spike is then forged red hot and twisted to provide a sure grip handle.
The blade is pounded flat then ground to a sharp edge.
If you admire the American men who built this nation's great railways then you need this spike knife.
They carried these knives because they couldn't always afford a fancy knife, but rail spikes were always plentiful and a blacksmith could be easily found and played for the labor with a few shots of rot but or an extra rail ration stamp.
