Al Pendray Persian knife, THE KNIFE: wood handle, hidden tang, raised rib through the middle, amazing balance, reinforced tip (as used for splitting open chain mail), 15 oak, 9 3/4 blade, alligator appearing sheath by Kenny Rowe. Mint with a ding or two. Both edges sharpened the full length of the blade. THE MAKER: Al is a former President of the Knifemakers' Guild, and perhaps more famous in the horse racing community as a top ranked farrier, having shoes Triple Crown and Kentucky Derby winners. Al was a major part of the rediscovery of wootz Damascus, a process that earned a multi-page article in Scientific American Magazine at the time. His knives are rare, and his wootz Damascus knives are virtually unobtainable--until now.
