The 2015 FKA Raffle Knife was a huge sucess. We raised almost $2,000. for the Shriners Hospital. The Damascus was forged, ground, etched,and polished by FKA President, John Davis. Finger guard, pommel, spacers and file work and fit-up by Ralph Turnbull. Master Engraver Roland J. Robidoux did the engraving. After engraving it was back to Jimmie Smith for scrimshaw and the presentation box. 100% of the proceeds went to the Shriners Hospitals for Children.
