Polished Railroad Spike Knife by hightowerchains Polished Railroad Spike Knife by hightowerchains
This knife was hand forged from a reclaimed railroad spike. After forging, this blade was brought to a high polish.

Pictures don't do this one justice.

Also, a knife like this looks like it could be the grounds for an excellent survival knife. It has a highly reflective blade, and the head of the spike could be used as a field hammer.

Thanks for the comments! Hadn't thought of the use of this one as a survival knife, but it most certainly could be used for that. Hope you get a chance to stop in the store soon.

The handle isn't polished. The scale that builds up as a byproduct of the forging process was removed by using an angle grinder with a wire wheel.
