Description: This very rare Defense Spike was made by renowned Northwest knifemaker Rod Chappel. Master Craftsman, Roderick “Caribou” Chappel, was a custom bladesmith based primarily out of Washington state. His blades were high-caliber works of art. He was an artist that brought his pen and paper drawings to life with ease and dexterity. A trail blazer, his passion for knifemaking greatly impacted the custom knifemaking industry. His artistry is immortalized through his unique one-of-a-kind knives, daggers, and bowies. Notorious for his ergonomic hand sculpted grips and the superior mastery in his sweeping grinds, he implemented a hollow grind with a rolled convex edge that would be resilient and sharp through many events of usage. Sadly, Chappel passed away in 2017. This Spike has been in a private collection and has been well cared for. It has never been used and is new condition. By all appearances, Rod could have made it yesterday!
The 2.5 inch blade is a broad triangular grind, combining three hollow grinds. It is scalpel-sharp, needle-pointed and a very lethal....and messy....weapon. The blade is inscribed "Roderick Caribou Chappel .… Spike".
The green Micarta handle is brought to a high polish and features jimping for extra grip. The entire knife and sheath weighs only 1 ounce, making it a perfect backup defense spike. A matching Micarta sheath makes the spike easy to carry in the pocket.
Excellent work throughout!
