US WW2 Richtig Fighting Knife -Antique Dagger/F J R CLARKSON NEB -FJRDetails
1 desirable vintage Frank J. Richtig aluminum-handled butcher 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 8". The handle on this knife has the 'HAND MADE BY F. J. RICHTIG CLARKSON, NEBR.' stamp. This knife measures 13 1/2" overall.
This knife is in nearly perfect condition.
