“TRAIL OF TEARS” custom knife
My friend mastersmith & custom knife maker Ray Kirk has hit another home run with his “Trail of Tears” fixed blade knife.
Ray is a member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. Ray forged steel for this knife that was obtained from a ball bearing factory in Dahlonega, Georgia, the point of departure of one of the 3 groups of Cherokees on the infamous Trail of Tears. The trail ended in near Ray’s home town of Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Ray made the knife to commemorate this historical event.
New unused. With certificate of Authenticity.
For this “TRAIL OF TEARS” knife ray inlayed a Cherokee pin into one side of the tear drop shaped handle made from Bois D Arc, a tree near Ray that was the end of the “TRAIL OF TEARS.
Ray forged the integral blade in the shape of a tear from the ball bearing he obtained which is 52100 steel. Raker MS is stamped on one side of the blade and 3 small tears falling from the point on the other side.
6.25″ OAL, 3.0″ Blade
Ray’s custom leather sheath with clip included.
