Pen knives from the Texas Sesquicentennial Series of 16 Knives with bark stag handles that came out in 1985 for the 1986 event. There were 1200 of each pattern made. The handle material is also called sandbar bone stag and all the knives were made by Parker & Son in Japan. Bark stag (sometimes called second cut stag) is the interior part of the deer antler to which a special jigging and dye has been added to the surface to give it a unique appearance.

Texas Sesquicentennial 1836 - 1986
Made over 25 years ago

The series is one of the best and most unique set of items ever made about the Long Star state of Texas. They are maybe the best knife group ever made dealing with Texas and especially dealing with the Texas Sesquicentennial.

All are near mint or better. All marked with special Texas Sesquicentennial Eagle on master blade and Parker & Son Chattanooga, TN on tang. Each with nickel silver bolsters and brass frames. Be sure to check the website for other knives in the series before they are all sold as we only have one of each to sale. We do not get these often so if you are trying to finish your collection now is the time. Be sure to look for the other knives we have in this series!
