First off, I would like to say that I am neither affiliated with nor do I endorse the KKK...that said, here's the story on this one. I was searching for advertising/novelty knives to add to my collection this weekend when I stumbled upon this one. I asked the seller if he had any advertising knives, and he cautiously mentioned he had a KKK knife. I was very surprised, as I am relatively new to collecting novelty knives, and didn't know such a thing existed! I asked him if I could see it and he pulled it out from what seemed to be a hiding place under a display of knives on his table. He said he had this knife, along with other KKK items, at a recent show and the organizers of the event asked him to remove all of the KKK items from his table. He said all he had left was this little knife. I thought to myself that if I didn't buy it, the chances of finding another one like it would probably be very small. So this little guy in his bed sheets is now a part of my collection. The stamp on the blade reads "U.S.A.". The knife is just under 3" when closed. Would anyone happen to know the maker of this knife? I feel that I am taking a risk by showing this knife in the gallery, but I am hoping that my fellow knife enthusiasts will see it for what it is, not what it represents. Please be kind to me! As I said before, I do not endorse the activities of the KKK. I am merely a collector of what I consider to be unique and interesting knives. Thanks for taking a look!
