This Southern Pacific Cooper Spike Knife was hand forged from a Southern Pacific Railroad spike, has notched thumbrest, .199" blade stock and 1.407" blade depth, integral construction. Has some staining and scratches, otherwise good condition.
"The stamp on the Southern Pacific Cooper Spike Knife is one that I had developed many years ago and had planned to make some knives here using this "TEXAS COOPER" stamp on, but we never made many, Mr. Cooper did not want to use that stamp. I put the Texas Cooper Logo on a few Spike Knives and put them in storage for many years until recently when i sold the lot to Kenneth Rabedeau. These Southern Pacific Cooper Spike Knife blades were all hand forged here in Texas and have been heat treated. The Souther Pacific Cooper Spike Knives are very rare and only a few other cooper knives had this logo on them. ---Clif Lenderman"
