Southpaw Knots | Snap Shots

Far to the north, in the fetid, mosquito-haunted marshes of Genesee County, Michigan, lie the headquarters of the Small American Business called Southpaw Knots Trading Company.

Southpaw Knots, as it is known colloquially to the cognoscenti and men of refined taste, produces a wide array of extraordinary, handcrafted items. Most you won’t fully appreciate lest you understand the word patina, but almost all of you will surely enjoy the pretty pictures.

Grunts: patina.

Pens, mugs, and assorted otherables, the work of Southpaw Knots is (as best I’ve seen), unfailingly well done.

I made my acquaintance with Southpaw Knots thanks to a priceless gift given to me by Freddy Osuna, HMFIC of Greenside Training. For many years I wore a memorial bracelet crafted for me in honor of my friend Josh by Derick Obatake of Steel Flame.

I loved the bracelet, and that Derick was looking at pictures of Robbie while he built it, but it was sterling silver, and eventually it broke. I was more than a little upset about it, and didn’t know what to do with it. I considered melting it down and doing something different with it, but wasn’t sure what. Freddy and I were teaching a tracking course at the time, and he took it, tell me to trust him.

I did, and it was a good decision. Freddy sent the remains of the bracelet to Southpaw Knots, who put parts of it on a pair of his signature mugs, and the rest on a new bracelet.

As you can imagine, I was floored by the gift. Once I got to looking at some of the other stuff made there, I realized it wouldn’t be the last bit of Southpaw Knots I own.

Here are a couple shots of other things they’ve done.
