I Forge Iron

1685 French style iron handled clasp knives

Mike Ameling

Based on originals recovered from the wreck of the ship la Belle which sank off the coast of Texas in 1685 near Corpus Christi. Similar knives were also used by sailors from the 1600's on up into the 1900's. Plus the Romans had their own variation of these. Just 3 pieces to them: a blade, that U shaped iron handle, and a pivot pin.
