Description: Raymond Richard's knives have an enduring grace about them that comes from a family heritage of knifemaking and a desire to create pieces completely unique unto themselves. Being from Oregon, Ray's Oregon Toothpick is his take on the classic Arkansas Toothpick design. James Black is frequently attributed with having invented the Arkansas Toothpick shape and it soon became a knife regularly used in duels. Ray's Oregon Toothpick has a sense of timelessness and will be passed on through generations.
Ray forged the blade to shape from 1084 carbon steel. It features a hand rubbed satin finish and a razor sharp edge.
The oval guard, spacer and end cap are forged from recovered wrought iron. Ray has textured and antiqued the furniture to accentuate its timeless appearance.
The handle is shaped from presentation grade curly maple. It fills the hand comfortably with a swell at the palm that will ensure a steadfast grip. The knife is accompanied by a custom sheath wet formed from two-ply cowhide.
Quite a spectacular piece from bladesmith Ray Richards -- excellent fit and finish throughout.
