The Medicine Blade is an integral style knife that was forged by Ray Kirk of
Tahlequah, Oklahoma, a Master Smith in the American Bladesmith Society and a
Citizen of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. Each blade has been forged from a
round bar of 52100, a high carbon steel of extreme high quality, and then
**smoked**. The handle material on this hidden tang knife is a solid piece of burl that has been stabilized by one of the best stabilizers in the
business, K&G of Lakeside, Arizona. The specially made high quality leather
sheath was made by Mike Stott of Tahlequah, Oklahoma. The sheath has been
specially designed to safely contain the blade until it is ready to use. The
length of the differentially heat treated blade with a distal taper is 3 7/8
inches and the overall length is 8 5/8 inches. Blade lengths
will probably vary an 1/8" due to each one being forged by hand.
Each knife is marked on the blade with the stencil RakeR
with the MS directly below. The other side
will have the stencil of MEDICINE BLADE and Rays Cherokee Register
Number, COO41719", below it.
Every effort has been made to insure that each blade will provide excellence in
both performance and behavior.

smoke and prayer. This ritual is to impart good spirits to the knife so that the
blade may help the owner. **
