Pocketknife & Horseshoe Necklace
Rust Belt Americana
Hand Made by: Sam Sloma
Stumbled upon this pocket knife in a basement toolbox in a Chicago suburb.
The horseshoe is an early 1900s tobacco tag.
“Around that time, it was made my pressing cured tobacco leaves together in a sweet syrup. Then you just took a bite off the plug to chew”
