Manufacturing Photos of our Teardrop Jack

We were very pleased that Great Eastern Cutlery agreed to produce our first knife offering. A Teardrop Jack marked “J.B.F. Champlin” on the tang with “WARRANTED” etched on the blade.

We had them make 50 with bone scales and 50 in ebony. The also did a short test run of 5 knives handled in Rosewood that was salvaged from the old Cattaraugus factory in Little Valley, NY.

We created this ad for Knife World Magazine using a little Photoshop before we actually had a finished knife in our hands.

GEC was kind enough to provide us with photos of the knives as they came to life on their production line. Here are some of the images they sent.
