A knife full of Texas history


Recommended Posts

Finished this one a couple of weeks ago.  The blade is 1836 layer damascus and includes nails from the house where the Mexican army met after San Jacinto.  The handle pins are from a harness decoration found at the Mexican camp in the "Sea of Mud."  The handle is from the Sam Houston oak, where the Texian army camped on the first night of the Runaway Scrape.  Finally, the design is intended to recall the coffin handled knives of James Black, similar to a knife found in the "Sea of Mud" excavations. Enjoy!
