Tim Troyer-Rick Hinderer Hatchet/Knife Auction To Help People Of Nepal


The Tim Troyer/Rick Hinderer Hatchet. Back in 1999, Tim Troyer and Rick Hinderer made a knife/hatchet combo as a fundraiser to buy people out of slavery in Nepal. Now that same collectible will be auctioned again at BLADE Show 2015, with proceeds helping the ravaged people there rebuild after recent devastating earthquakes.

Mr. Paul Weaver, the original buyer, has donated it back to The Reckoning International to be sold again to help the Nepal people in the wake of a growing humanitarian crisis.

This knife/hatchet combo, which was produced in collaboration with Rick Hinderer, one of the top names in custom tactical folders, will be auctioned at BLADE Show 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia, June 5-7, 2015.

In the wake of the recent Nepal earthquakes, the needs are very great and the timing couldn’t be better to auction this very special knife at BLADE Show 2015.

Be sure to see this knife at table 9I, where Troyer will be running the knife auction throughout the weekend. Enter a bid that will change the lives of the people of Nepal one more time.
