Arkansas Toothpicks by Sonoran Desert Knives

I’ve always been a huge fan of Bowie knives. There’s nothing like the feel of a well made Bowie in your hand no mater the task, be it camping, hunting or fighting. Just the intimidation of pulling a Bowie out of its sheath is a factor of 10+. Watching the TV show “Revolution” (S#!& Happens episode)  last night with my wife got my blood flowing when they set the scene of Miles using a sword against one of the Texas Rangers who welded a large Bowie, blade up. Good knife fight.

But I digress. Along with the famed Bowie knife stands the Arkansas Toothpick. A large double edge bladed knife which was kin to the Bowie knife.

The Arkansas toothpick is a heavy dagger with a 12–20-inch (30–51 cm) pointed, straight blade. The knife is balanced and weighted for throwing and can be used for thrusting and slashing. James Black, the inventor of the Bowie knife, is credited with inventing the Arkansas toothpick. (from Wikipedia).

While serving in the Military many of my brothers enjoyed carrying the Gerber Mark 1 knife while I in turn carried a 12″ Arkansas Toothpick. A lot of eyeballs would widen anytime I needed to un-sheath my knife.

When I began knife collecting, Of course I focused on what like, mostly Bowie type knives along with good well-balanced fighters and of course toothpicks. Unfortunately, not many toothpicks were readily available. There where only cheap $20-$30 versions (you get what you pay for) or extremely expensive $600+ customs. When I started Sonoran Desert Knives, I decided to offer a mid range toothpick. Needless to say, they went fast. Selling out in less than six months.

I have decided to release at this time two of the three that I have in my personal collection. This is your chance to get a very well made custom Arkansas Toothpick at a reasonable price. These are 12 3/4″ knives with a beautiful stag handle, full tang, Damascus guard and a high carbon 8 3/4″ Damascus blade.

Kemal Midnight Dagger Set

Up for sale on the website is a Don Fogg & Murad Sayen collaboration one of a kind set of daggers.

The name Kemal is an Arabic word referring to the state of balance between the creative power of the sun (Jelal) and the receptive power of the moon (Jemal). It can be literally translated as “balanced” or “perfect.” We chose this name for our business as a living ideal for the qualities that we tried to build into each knife.
