A State Representatives Knife!

Jackie Wray approached me about making a knife for her son, John Wray, who just so happens to be our State Representative.  Jackie wanted the State Seal to be on the knife and sheath.  I located some cuff links in the gift shop of the State Capitol.  After receiving the cuff links, I was able to complete the knife just barely in time for Christmas.  The blade is 52100 acid etched ball bearing steel.  The handle is made of stabilized black ash, olive wood, leather spacer, and maroon spacer material.  The knife has a brass guard and one of the aforementioned Sate Capitol cuff links as a pommel.   My wife made another awesome sheath for the knife with the remaining cuff link inset.  Hopefully, the knife will be put to good use in Austin!

About www.extrausual.com

I am an Assistant County and District Attorney at the Ellis County District Attorney's Office. On November 20, 2017, Comedian Bert Kreischer inspired me to start a weight loss journey. I started this journey at 475 pounds. Through Bert's support, Professional Wrestling Hall of Famer and Fitness Legend, Diamond Dallas Page reached out to me and changed my life. DDP Yoga and Nutrition under Dallas' guidance keeps the weight falling off of me and increases the quality of my daily life, every day. I started this podcast and blog to personally track my journey but to also interview other extra usual individuals. Those that inspire, teach, help, create, invent, discover, or are simply interesting. A lawyer for 24 years, I see negativity and conflict daily. I want to be part of something positive and inspiring. This is my outlet, my journey, my mid-life crisis, my future. If you know someone inspiring to you, let me know. I will interview this person, maybe he or she will inspire us all. Thanks. Vance
