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 is a large 18 15/16" Richtig fighter. The blade itself measures 13 3/16". This Richtig fighter is stamped 'F.J.R. CLARKSON NEB.'. The guard and pommel are brass. The pommel has an extended lanyard ring.
This WW2 Richtig fighting knife shows both honest signs of carry in World War 2, and exceptional condition. The blade was kept perfectly sharp on a stone. This knife has an edge like only a Richtig can have. The handle is excellent.
This ultra rare Richtig WW2 fighting knife would make a one of a kind addition to any collection.
