OOAK Kingman Turquoise Knife Necklace
The one of a kind pen knife necklace is an essential in anyone’s Ax+Apple collection. Sourced throughout wind chasing travels to all corners of the US, each knife is different and whispers tales from its own unique history. Pen knives are small, thin pocket knives originally invented to sharpen the tips of quill pens. These knives were intentionally designed to not interfere with dress clothes. Worn by men and women, they were often attached to the end of a watch fob chain and slipped in a skirt or vest pocket. It has always brought me great joy to breathe new life into these old beauties, continuing tradition from a time when form and functionality regularly met in such a meaningful way. Each one of a kind Ax+Apple knife necklace features a genuine vintage pen knife. No two are the same.
Vintage sterling silver penknife: 2 1/4" closed with bale. Hand selected Kingman Turquoise stones added in house.
Chain: 30" sterling silver signature mixed-link style chain with intricate transitions. Heavy luxe feel. Lots of metal in that chain.
