Richtig, F.J.

F J Richtig made knives for about 50 years from the 1930's to the 1970's. He was born in Nebraska in 1887,became an apprentice blacksmith in 1905 and in 1916 began experimenting with electric heat treating of steel. in 1925 he started producing knives. He produced many styles of cast aluminum handled kitchen knives as well as aluminum and regular handled hunting knives. His main credit would be in his secret tempering method. Where ever he'd set up his wares he'd bring an anvil along and proceed to cut a piece of metal in two and still retain an edge sharp enough to shred paper. One of his other key note features was his cast aluminum handles. In 1938 he was declared a Master Ironsmith by the National Blacksmith and Welders Association. FJ produced knives until around 1977.
