Ottis M. Mullins Knives & Other

Otis Mullins, a native of Wise County, handcrafts railroad spike knives and knives with antler handles and blades of stainless steel and sawmill blades.

The spike knives are made of spikes found along railways in Wise and Dickenson counties in Virginia. They are hard carbon steel and no two knives come out exactly the same.
