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 measures 8" overall. The blade itself measures 3 13/16". This Richtig fighter is marked on the guard 'F.J.R. CLARKSON NEB.'.
The sheath is stamped 'ALFRED CORNISH OMAHA, NEB.'.
