Description

Hand forged railroad spike knife, this knife is a great gift for train collectors, railroad employees, or anyone who can appreciate the fine craftsmanship and artistic style that goes into creating each one. Authentic spikes purchased direct from the railway manufacturer, make our knives a favorite for any railroad enthusiast. Being hand forged by a blacksmith, make our knives a cool addition to any knife collection, Forged in Fire fan, or anyone who appreciates the hard work and passion of a blacksmith.

Knives are 8.5" total length, 4.5" blade, 4" handle. Wire brushed finish with a natural wax coating. Dimensions may vary slightly as each item is handmade and forged independently. We file sharpen and harden them to hold an edge. For a finer edge the customer must apply a wet stone or graphite stick. We recommend these knives for light to medium duty use. They are intended for average functionality as well as show. We do not recommend them for heavy duty use or survival type use.

FAQs

Officially our ship times are 3-5 business days but that is the max. Our normal ship times are usually 2-3 business days, but if you need it in a hurry let us know and we will do our best to accommodate. Just let us know in a conversation or in the notes when you need to receive your item/s and we will do our best or let you know if there's a problem. This is our ship out time, this does not include transit time in the mail.

As far as the ship time is concerned we ship USPS only and you can find that information on the shipping tab in the listing.
Just send us a message, we use a third party shipping service and can change your address instantly.
We only use USPS (United States Postal Service). If you have a PO BOX definitely use that address.
Yes.

You do not have to get the same thing on each knife or bottle opener. you can have whatever you want stamped on each one. Just leave us a note in the "Notes to Seller" section at checkout telling us what you want on them.
It's not hard. Really.

Single knife or opener:

Just add up how many letters or numbers are being stamped on the item and select that option in the drop down. Dots and spaces we do NOT count as characters.

Group sets:

Example 1:

If you are getting a bottle opener set of 6, and you are getting 3 initials and a common date on all, for instance:

FTR
8.24.16

The character selection for the set would be 7-10 characters.

Example 2:

If you are getting different names on each you would tally up the TOTAL number of characters in the order and divide that total by the number of items. Example:

Jeff
Bob
Bill
Joseph
Albert
Jon

This is a total of 26 characters for the order, average of 4.3 characters per item. 4-6 character option.
We have our own in house custom made sheaths.

Check out our Knife Sheath section.
Unless otherwise stated in the listing all of our finishes are intended for indoor use, including all cabinet and door hardware. Exposure to moisture, humid conditions, and salt water environments may cause rust.
Etsy's system does not have a specific place to type in your personalization. Choose your item, choose the total number of characters you want stamped, and the location you want stamped. There is a "notes to seller" section at checkout, please leave the stamping information there or send us an email. We will need to know what to stamp and where.

Example:

Head: 7-25-17
Side 1: MATT
Side 2: Best Man
