• Handmade Dacite Blade Knife In Silent Auction


    Benefitting the Comanche County Historical Museum

    On October 20, 2013, at 1:30 in the afternoon, the Comanche County Historical Museum will be unveiling its newly acquired arrowhead collection. Of course, the museum will be serving the delicious refreshments for which it is known, including homemade pies by Gustine’s Henry Adcock. The event will serve as a fundraiser for the museum.

    In addition to the arrowhead collection and refreshments, the museum will be offering via silent auction three of Henry’s pies (donated by the Comanche Dairy Queen and Patsy Smart of Comanche) as well as a handmade dacite blade knife made by historian/artisan, Tommy Patterson.

    Tommy is a historian who specializes in Native American artifacts, taking his expertise into the art room where he not only creates arrowheads, but he is also an expert knife maker, focusing on both obsidian and dacite blades. The handle of the knife to be offered in the silent auction is carved from both maple and moose antler.

    If you are unable to attend on the 20th but would like to place a bid on the knife or preorder one of Henry’s pies or even a dozen apricot fried pies (for a minimum donation of $75.oo or more) call Fredda at 324-280-9083.
