For the new year I am adding a new look to the Trail of Tears knife.  I have started inlaying the seal of the Cherokee Nation into the handle.  The older model without it will still be available on request.  The price of the knife is still the same, $195.00, which also includes shipping, certificate of authenticity, 2 gig thumb drive of video, and leather pouch sheath with clip.  The video can be down loaded to your computer and you are encouraged to shared it with others. 


I have started making what I call "Heirloom Knives".  These are knives that will have some or all the parts of the knife furnished by the customer to make a knife for them with a part of their family history.  I am making them in the 5 inch chef style for the kitchen and hope they will be used for a very long time.  Passed down and used some more.  The knife shown below is the first one I made for my family.  It is made from the front coil spring of my Father's old 89 Ford that he bought new and has been passed to me and then on down to his grandson.  The handle material came from a coffee table that my brother made my parents when he was in high school shop shop class under Mr. Swofford around 1964.  I would be very glad to help some one else turn their family memory into an Heirloom Knife.  I can use some of mine or the customer's  steel and work with a suitable handle material from the customer. Which ever I can do to help the customer realize their goal.  The base price is $400.00 and does not have a sheath for it since it is for the kitchen.  Custom sizes are available, email for approximate cost.

This knife has a 5" blade and is 9 3/4 inches OAL with stabilized handle.

.531" and .39" dia. 52100 round bar. $4.00 per pound.
