1 desirable vintage Frank J. Richtig aluminum-handled skinning 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 6". The handle on this knife has the 'F.J.R. CLARKSON NEB.' stamp. (Other stamps seen on knives made by Frank Richtig include the 'HAND MADE BY F. J. RICHTIG CLARKSON, NEBR.' stamp, and the blacksmith image stamp'). This knife measures 10 3/4" overall.
This Richtig knife is in beautiful condition. The blade edge was sharpened on a grinder. Otherwise there is only some of the usual carbon steel staining.
This listing represents the opportunity to pick up a desireable, Richtig skinning knife to add to a collection or to one's working gear.
