1 desirable vintage Frank J. Richtig aluminum-handled knife available.  This hard-to-find Frank Richtig knife would make an important addition to any collection, and would also make a fine using knife--a knife that few others in the country still use, because they have been snatched up by collectors.


This knife was made by a legend in knife-making.  Frank Richtig had a secret steel tempering process that allowed him to slice through railroad spikes and automobile leaf springs.  Frank would demonstrate this at county fairs--after slicing a railroad spike or leaf spring, he would slice through a piece of paper with the same knife.  Frank earned himself a spot in a 'Ripley's Believe It or Not' magazine in the 1930's.  These knives can be used for decades, because of Frank's superior craftsmanship. 


This knife has a blade that measures 7".  The handle on this knife has the 'F.J.R.  CLARKSON  NEB.' stamp.  This knife measures 11 3/16" overall.  

This antique Richtig knife is in top condition with a full blade.
