Description: The Old West was a time when protection had to be close at hand. Pistol knives were came in use during card games and the like. Bruce has created this modern masterpiece to evoke that era. This is the second pistol knife created by Bruce, who is one of three makers (including Mastersmith Ron Newton and Wade Colter) to have made these modern recreations. It is very exciting that these three makers were awarded the prestigious Wooden Sword Award this year for their pistol knife creations. This award is given out by Knives Annual for "What the author believes is a champion of a knife among a multitude of winners" . . . the best of the best. This pistol knife won "Best of Show" at the Northwest Knife Collectors Show.
