Everyone knows I do cars and have a replica cobra. Well, my (best) wife (ever) and Andy Fanin conspired on me! This was the result. My birthday present. It’s perfect. For those of you not familiar with Andy’s work, you should be. His fit and finish is spot on.

A Cobra has been my dream car since the first time I saw one. Had a 65 fastback back in high school until it was totaled by a lady trying to pay her water bill before the office closed. I have a 66 coupe that I bought for my father and I were going to make a project but he died before we could even get started.

Anyway those are awesome knives congratulations, love em both. Who did the one with the mustang shield?

I’m sorry for the loss of your father. You should still do it in his memory.

They are both from Andy Fanin. Both are outstanding knives.

Thanks everyone!

Here are the cars they represent. The pony is a tribute to 50th anniversary mustangs. I have owned two of the 1964 made, long story there. #’s 275 and now 1596. Very special cars. I like the gt350, 500 and the new Mach 1 but get anxiety thinking about getting rid of the 50th.

Here is my little Shelby replica. 302, 310 whp. It’s not perfect but I did everything except spray the color and the clear. It was fun to build and more fun to drive.

And me and my beautiful wife the day we got married. We drove home in the cobra. It broke on my road and we coasted in (ecu piggy back I use for tuning fried). I could only imagine us broke down on side the road in a tux and wedding dress lol! I married WAY outta my league.

Great gift and very thoughtful wife. I saw Andy post that on Instagram yesterday. It’s cool to see it come to someone on the porch.

Joey, that is an absolutely great looking knife and a very cool way to merge a couple of hobbies. I just want to know how you’re going to top that on her birthday? It’d better not be any post-it-note IOU’so_Oo_O

One things for sure those beautiful knives are more rare than the cars they represent. It's going to be tough to top that for her birthday so you better start thinking now.
