dbad Arkansas Toothpick

dbad with the deadly Arkansas Toothpick

Around 1836 in the American state of Arkansas, it’s said that knife maker James Black, first forged this now historically famous blade. Throughout the 1800’s, the knife wold commonly boast a blade between 12 and 20 inches long. It was a slashing weapon used not only for cutting meat and produce but also for hunting the always dangerous wild boar.


What’s so special about the blade?
17 inches of quarter inch thick 52100 steel is beautifully tapered with dual sharpened edges. The highly polished blade offers little resistance as it penetrates it’s target and at the same time, offers a very easy clean up. 


What is the grip?
The 6 inches of full tang, sits perfectly behind it’s V shaped guard and flares out from guard to pommel. Topped with KHHI’s own shop made micarta scales, the user is guaranteed a comfortable and easy to use, secure grip in any and all conditions.



23 inch overall length, high carbon 5160 steel, fully functional, 
blade widest portion:: 66mm (2.6inch) approx
guard: 7 mm V guard 4.2 inches wide
flat handle not circular
17inch dual edge sharp blade

My DBAD Arkansas Toothpick just arrived moments ago and it's arguably the best knife I've handled to date: perfection out of the box. Much respect to Donnie B All Day and KHHI, the best knife designer-maker tandem in the world.

My favorite Large knife, the DBAD Arkansas toothpick!

The DBAD ARKANSAS TOOTHPICK was my third DBAD blade purchase by KHHI, in the usual fashion, I was VERY IMPRESSED by the quality, workmanship and design of the knife that I have received! The large, 17 inch bladed double edged knife came as I had requested, "SUPER SHARP"!!! The beautiful, highly polished blade, blade guard and it's coffin shaped, full tanged Micarda handle was well, bullet proof!!! To say I am pleased, is an understatement. Starting with me, this beautiful "functional" blade will be handed down my family's generations as an heirloom... Need I say more? Well actually I can say more. I "will" be buying more DBAD/KHHI blades in the very near future! They are just that good!

an awesome blade

a couple days ago i got hold of my Dbad Arkansas Toothpick...and i must say i'm absolutely stunned! if you love Bowie blades, then you will be thrilled with this blade and you must aquire one asap. This is an awesome version of the Arkansas Toothpick and KHHI once again shows how its done..very sharp with unbelievable blade bevels, very very strong point and unbelievable balance and feel in the hand for such a total length...this project is a triumph of the KHHI knifesmiths and all serious Bowie aficionados must get one.

Phenomenal Beauty!

Finding this company is a dream come true. Coming from a Spanish family where Fencing and blades are like religion to us, finding quality blades is no easy task. It is almost impossible to find a well-made, true to size Arkansas Toothpick, and when you do, they are pure trash. The Toothpick, no matter its history, is in reality a pure-bred killing machine and needs talent in forging. When this blade arrived from Nepal, hand forged by Arjun Baraily from kuhukuri House, I couldn’t believe it. I have been searching for this blade for the past 25 years in America with no luck. This blade is a work of art and magical. I highly recommend this blade and Company, and most important, this blades smith, to real afficionados of the blade. I am now having another one of their creations being forged as we speak. Bless the beautiful country of Nepal and its people.
