This knife by Scott Roush features a "Lightning Bolt" San Mai Damascus blade with a single nickel layer on each side, raised clip recurve blade with textured flats and false top edge, .262" blade stock and 1.682" blade depth, full tang construction. The handle has a hand forged wrought iron guard made from a Civil War Wagon Wheel, 150+ year old rough textured ebony scales with hand peened nickel silver pins, lanyard hole at the butt with vintage Native American beads on the leather lanyard. Comes with a Native American made sheath with leather and fur overlays. Comes with nylon zippered case. Has some light scratches, otherwise excellent condition. This knife was made for Sylvester Stallone and was to be his co-star in the movie "Geronimo", but it did not come to be.
Note from maker: Gregory (from Art Knife Gallery) contacted me a number of years ago to make this knife for Stallone's movie (at the time) 'Geronimo'. Apparently he was in direct contact with Stallone... and design elements were made through phone calls. The knife was supposed to be a central part of the story.. something about the knife being forged by a special native American smith and then gifted to Stallone's character.. a trapper. Greg would call me, call Stallone, call me, call Stallone, etc.... over several months until we came up with this. I delivered the knife but then Stallone's son died and the movie project just.... vanished. I've never heard anything since. The sheath was made by Chuck Burrows who was also making other accessories for the movie.
