USA Custom Vintage Arkansas Toothpick Masterpiece Knife in Handmade Walnut Case. Godoy Luxe is extremely pleased and proud to present a premier, handmade Arkansas Toothpick edged-masterpieceand a certified part of the KodiaK Classic American Fighting Knives Collection, presented in its custom, handmade, Antebellum-styled presentation Walnut case. This unique, historically important, and heroically proportioned Arkansas Toothpick edged masterpiece was created in the early-1980s by the KodiaK blademaster team, with legendary blademasters Doug Brack and Jim Ferguson in the lead. Doug and Jim were both members of the blademaster dream team that designed and created the KODIAK Classic American Fighting Knives Collection, featuring the traditional Bowie, American Fighter, and Arkansas Toothpickthe three iconic fighting knives of the Antebellum/Civil War/Reconstruction periods. These classic edged masterpieces carved a legendary place for themselves in American history and helped tame the American West side-by-side with the Winchester 75 Rifle and the Colt SAA Six Shooter.
The Arkansas Toothpick is a formidable edged weapon designed for throwing, thrusting, and slashing. It is essentially a long, heavy dagger with a straight, double-edged blade that tapers to a sharp, toothpick point, making it remarkably effective for piercing armor, padding, or other forms of protective equipment. Today, the Arkansas Toothpick is the official insignia of the U. 309th Infantry Brigade, the largest National Guard command in Arkansasand an elite combat force that specializes in close, hand-to-hand combat.This exceptional Arkansas Toothpick was forged from a custom, Jim Ferguson Damascus Steel Billet. Its substantial 1/4 stock imbues the knife with a uniquely powerful, distinctive, and effective character. The contrast between the Twisted Nickel Damascus Steel silver blade, and the bright, 18 K, industrial gold-plated brass guard, butt cap, and traditionally ruffled collar, makes a dramatic statement about both: the tough, but proud and elegant American heritage of this knife, and the fierce individuality and patriotism of our forebears. The Walnut Presentation Case is a museum-quality objet dart itself. Handmade by one of the leading craftsmen in the manufacture of Antebellum and Civil War period weapon presentation cases, this case features: premium, treated American Walnut wood; antique solid brass fixtures to properly secure the case and facilitate its safe transportation; a lined, fitted receptacle for the knife, and an upholstered and padded lid interior to protect and secure the knife in place. The exterior of the lid features a bronze plate engraved with the brand name of the Kodiak Classic American Fighting Knives Collection, and the specific name of the Knife contained in the case: The Arkansas Toothpick. This museum-quality Arkansas Toothpick edged masterpiece and its Presentation Case have been kept sealed in corrosion-inhibitor, Mil-Spec Cosmoline paper, and temperature-controlled storage for more than 30 years. The knife has never been used for any purpose whatsoever, and its masterful, Damascus steel blades perfect sharp edges have not been touched since their original sharpening by the Blademasters who created it.
Both the knife and its formal presentation case are in showroom condition. Specifications for the Kodiak Classic American Fighting Knife Arkansas Toothpick Issue.
