Completed in Autumn of 2019, the World’s Largest Pocketknife weighs in at over 6,200 lbs of American steel, with a handle over 20 ft long and a blade that is over 17ft long. The knife was built by Modern Welding in Elizabethtown, KY, and was detailed by Ward Frahler of Glenn’s Auto Body shop in Vine Grove, KY. The knife is made to replicate a Case XX® Genuine Stag Barlow pattern and sits upon a reinforced steel and concrete bricked wall structure.The Basham family, owners of Red Hill Cutlery, are currently finalizing documentation with Guinness World Records on the global distinction of World’s Largest Pocketknife.
