    Arkansas Toothpick (by Allen Newberry)


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Last February on a visit to the Historic Arkansas Museum (They have a great knife exhibit!) inspiration hit me. After seeing this knife:



    I decided that I needed to make an Arkansas Toothpick my self. Later that month I forged it out:



    And I have been working on it here and there ever since. I originally was going to do a fluted walnut handle, but when I stuck the piece of stag that is now the handle up next to the blade I decided to change direction.

    Here it is before shaping the guard:



    It has progressed a bit since this last photo, but I am without a camera at the moment. I am really liking how this one is turning out so far!

    My love for the Arkansas Toothpick started with my reading "The Garfield Honour" by Frank Yerby about 35 years ago.

    I haven't read that one. But if it inspires love for the Arkansas Toothpick...

    I just got her all glued up! And now that I have a functioning camera, I'll have to snap a picture tomorrow.

    You must get some big chunks of meat stuck in your teeth Allen.

    It's better to have it & not need it than to need it & not have it! (a gun that is)
    May the forest be with you.
