Fit for a King

King of NASCAR that is… Mr. Richard Petty. What a project! Edmund Davidson created this modified version of a Bob Loveless Big Bear integral style knife; 17 ½”overall length, Peters Heat Treating; Jerry Davidson engraver. I did the scrim and we all presented the knife in person at the Richard Petty Museum in Randleman, North Carolina. Steve Shackleford wrote an article about the project and the presentation for Blade magazine’s May 2010 issue.  Richard Petty is a wonderful person and has a delightful family. It was such a pleasure to be part of collaboration like this. The subject matter was chosen by Mr. Petty, his daughter Lisa, and her Husband Charlie Luck. It represents his home in Randleman where he and his wife, Linda, grew up and his ‘Winner’s Retreat” near Jackson Hole, Wyoming. My thanks go out to Edmund and, Charlie and Lisa Luck for making this project possible.
