Hand Forged Dagger (Arkansas Toothpick) by Iron-Eye Hand Forged Dagger (Arkansas Toothpick) by Iron-Eye
Hand Forged Dagger (Arkansas toothpick)

This is a completely unique hand forged knife based on the arkansas toothpick design made in my coke fueled forge.

The handle was taken from trimmed peices of red deer antler with a copper balster and hand forged steel hilt. The blade itself was re-forged from a scrapped high carbon steel engineer file.

-High Carbon Steel blade.
-Oil quenched.
-Tempered Steel
-Full tang
-Polished copper balster


This was a custom order peice but others are available for purchase here - keep checking for a large stock update

Pardon my silly question--what does "oil quenched" mean?

Beautiful blade, though. Love the hilt and handle!

Oil quenched means -when you heat the blade up to temper it (basically harden it) it gets very hot indeed - you can use various liquids to "quench" or rappidly cool the meatl in to temper it. Oil is one of the liquids used.

Thats like the vaguest roughest explanation i can think off! - thankyou for the lovely comments!
