This is a forged cobra made from a rail road spike.

Rough dimensions are

4 1/2" H x 5" W x 4 " D

This piece is heated, pounded out by hand with a hammer on an 100 year old anvil and wire wheeled till its smooth to the touch and then reheated till it is black and given a hot wax finish.

These are made to order based off of the original and can take up to a week to ship.

I also make these custom. We can make anything you would like custom. Email me to inquire.

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.
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:


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:


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.
