This page of my site is devoted to displaying some of the knives that I have created to be either historic reproductions or historically-inspired. I hope you enjoy browsing them.
There is a brief write-up about each of these knives, along with pictures. For more information, or if you would like to discuss a custom reproduction, please contact me through my email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Edwin Forrest Knife
At right you will find a reproduction of the knife that is said to have been given to actor Edwin Forrest by James Bowie.
If this tradition is accurate, this would be an original Bowie blade shape.
This is one long knife. The blade is about 12 3/4 inches, and the overall measurement is about 17 3/8 inches.
Currently, a custom Edwin Forrest reproduction knife is $700, including a $100, non-refundable deposit.* If you’d like to place an order to get yours in the works, please use the PayPal order form on this page!
This tough-looking one is a reproduction of a knife carried in the film “The Alamo,” starring John Wayne.
The blade is O-1 steel and is antiqued to display a rugged patina.
Approximate measurements are: blade, 10 inches; overall length, 15 inches.
Currently, a custom reproduction of this Alamo piece is $650, including a $100, non-refundable deposit.* If you’d like to place an order to get yours in the works, please use the PayPal order form on this page!
“Gone to Texas”
This knife is based on the one carried by Michael Beck in the movie “Gone to Texas.”
It is a clipped bowie blade with Spanish influence. The blade is approximately 12 inches long and the overall length is about 18 inches. That’s a knife.
A few of the details include an imposing brass guard, brass pommel cap, and a handle of ivory paper micarta. This material looks amazingly like bone. The steel used in the blade is O-1 tool steel.
Handcrafted leather belt sheath sets this knife off.
Currently, a custom reproduction of this whopping knife is $850, including a $100, non-refundable deposit.* If you’d like to place an order to get yours in the works, please use the PayPal order form on this page!
The book focused on ultra-light camping and in it, there’s a woodcut showing a double bit hatchet, a pocket knife, and sheath knife.
This special edition Lucas Forge knife is made to be a close reproduction of that sheath knife.
Lucas’ version features an aged 1/8-inch, O-1 high carbon steel blade, a rustic antler handle, and three brass pins. In addition, this knife doesn’t have the usual Lucas Forge etch, but a special one: Sears Nessmuk By Lucas Forge.
The knife in the woodcut appears to sport an antler crown handle, but this one is full tang. The measurements of the axe have been used to scale this knife to match the woodcut. It is just under 10 inches overall, with a 5 1/4-inch blade.
It is further complemented by a handsome sheath.
