  • This railroad spike is over 100 years old and is from a portion of a passenger rail line in Sevier County Utah which had its service discontinued in 1949. In 1982 a massive land slide blocked the old rail lines, and they were later removed and sold for scrap. Jim walked for miles and spent hours looking until he found a spike from that rail line and made this knife. He also wrote up a history of the rail service along that line and signed it. We are including his write up.
