Larry, I've seen several of these. And they'll show up on FleaBay now and then. This one came from out in Utah.
I think the maker just decided to make a knife out of a spike. To me it's sort of a combination of Americana art or folk art, and tourist souvenir. I imagine a forge, anvil, hammer, tongs, and maybe a vise were all needed. And maybe some knowledge of metalurgy. I saw this one, thought it was kinda cool, and bought it. It makes an interesting photograph and conversation piece, I think.
: It would be so very interesting to know what was in the maker's mind and if he got the spike after it was twisted.
