Jim Behring of Treeman Knives holds up a Kit Carson creation

Did you  known that Kit Carson, renowned for popularizing the flipper-style of folding knife, made swords? Jim Behring of Treeman Knives has two of those swords, a Persian-style dagger, a D-guard knife along with a knife Jim imagines a Roman gladiator would use as a last resort, plus a number of other fixed blades, all stamped and authenticated. All Jim would say is that he got these Kit Carson creations from an estate sale in Indiana. He’s looking to get them into the hands of someone who would appreciate their value. You’ll find Jim at booth 6E. BLADE Show is open from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Saturday and from 9 a.m. To 2 p.m. on Sunday at the Cobb Galleria Centre, Atlanta, Georgia.
