Horseman’s Knife is One Gorgeous Affair


Featured in the “Take It To Your Graver” chapter in the “State Of The Art” section of the Knives 2013 book, C. Gray Taylor’s horse knife exhibits an antique-tortoise-shell handle, and at least 18 implements, such as a hoof pick, bleeding blade, main blade, file, saw, tweezers, cork screw, punches, awl, toothpick, and a tiny swing-handle folder, also with what looks like a tortoise handle.

The centerpiece of the handle comes in the form of a gold horse carved and engraved by Lisa Tomlin, and it is the coup de grace of an already astounding art knife. Bravo! The photo is by Eric Eggly, PointSeven Studios.
